Hand knotted wool Persian tribal Bidjar rug with rich and vibrant colors is up for this auction. It is in excellent condition. The exquisite colors and durability of this Bidjar rug makes it very desirable. Size 5.3 x 3.7 feet, this rug is made of 100 percent naturally dyed kork wool on cotton foundation. kork wool is taken from the neck, belly and underarms of the sheep. This is often considered the most choice of wool to come from the sheep, as it is very fine, thin, and long stapled. Kork wool is most often reserved for only the finest of weavings. The rugs from the town of Bidjar demonstrate beauty. The techniques of the weavers who make Bidjar rugs result in uniquely stiff rug. These rugs most be rolled up for transport; they are too stiff to fold. The designs of Bidjar rugs share may elements of other rugs of northwest Iran. Therefore, no one can confidently attribute a rug to the Bidjar area on design alone. ; The approximate year of origin: 2000-2010
