Antique Bidjar Rugs Bidjar is a town in Persian Kurdistan located in north-west Persia. All of the knots are symmetrical and the rows are beaten down during the weaving process producing a dense compact fabric. The many designs depict the Kurdish influence of the area and often floral and classical geometric motifs are employed as well as the use of large, whimsical medallion designs. The color palate is rich and jewel toned making the Bidjar a highly desirable rug sought after by designers. They are mostly made of wool over wool goundatio
