If you are looking for a rug to add drama to an otherwise subdued décor, this is it! With its bright colors and overly busy design this Bakhtyari is eye catching.
Measuring 15’9″ x 20’, this particular piece boasts bold design elements in a combination of rich colors. The colors and design elements have been cleverly used to create a lot of contrasts and highlights that add to the beauty of the rug. The rug features a central medallion surrounded by progressive outline fields in a variety of dimensions. The result is simply electrifying!
The rug is completely hand knotted with a rich, lush wool pile against a cotton foundation. The red, blue and red colored dyes that are used in the rug are obtained from vegetation that grows locally in the region.
You very rarely see Bakhtyari rugs in this combination of colors, making this one of the rare pieces in this style.
