Attractive Baktiar Carpet

Attractive Baktiar Carpet

When the Baktiari finally began to settle in villages from the end of the 19th century, they wove decorative carpets which are so often underrated. This is a perfect example. Hand spun wool and wonderful natural dyes, in particular the terracotta, green, yellow and blue which have mellowed over time and created beautiful gentle abrashes. The design is restrained and folksy yet elegant, the details drawn in a very naïve and charming way. The field is complemented by a charming ivory border. Overall the colours are harmonious and draw the viewer in. It is a very charismatic carpet which would adorn many different settings. The size is also very useful, small room-size which is so difficult to find. This carpet is an exceptional buy. Well looked after through the generations, it has survived in good pile, with ends and sides intact. A recently professionally cleaning brought out the wonderful depth of colour in the natural dyes.
