Bidjar rugs are woven using a symmetrical knot unlike the majority of Persian rugs which are produced with the asymmetrical knot. Bidjar rugs appear in a wide variety of designs, from central medallions to mina khani. The modern Bidjars tend to be very rigid, heavy rugs and are often referred to as ‘The Iron Rugs of Persia’. Bidjar is a town situated in the northwest of Iran. It is surrounded by many rug weaving villages whose productions are also labelled Bidjar. The area is inhabited by Kurds. Older rugs tended to use a wool foundation, but more recent pieces use cotton. Kilims are generally woven with a slit structure. Smaller kilims are similar in design to those of Senneh.
