Bidjar Tekab rug made in Iran in 2000.
Bidjar rugs and carpets have long had a mystique that makes them a "man's rug". Called the Iron rug of Persia they have an odd feature that few other rugs can match. The densely packed pile is so tight that the pile cannot lay down. Because the fibers are constantly erect when you step on the rug it has a cushioned feel that makes it great to walk upon. For the large segment of the market for whom tactile qualities are important this is a compelling feature even if barely one in one thousand could ever explain why. In between Iranian City and the less sophisticated village and tribal rugs are the rugs of Bidjar. Bidjar rugs seem thicker compare to other Persian rugs, but the exceptional thickness is due not to extra length of pile, as in most heavy rugs, but to exceptional depth of foundation, from which emerge a short, sharp, erect pile and clarity of pattern that high and overlapping pile never produces. Now the Bidjar rug that is offered here, is a top quality Bidjar, which is called Tekab quality. This type of Bidjars rugs with silk are currently selling in rugs bazzar in Iran at $70.00 per sq.ft.(800$ per sq.m.) dealer to dealer price.
