This Bakhtiari rug from Western Persia is a very unique rug in that the weavers used only the natural wool from sheep without the need for dying the wool. It has a beautiful light brown or camelhair color field with an allover design. The field contains geometric designs in diamond shape forms throughout. The natural wool colors in the rug include antique white, black, dark gray, and brown. The border has geometric designs set in white color background. The rug is very similar in colors and designs to antique Turkish Oushak carpets from that period. Click here to see other handwoven Bakhtiari tribal rugs in our collection.
