This carpet is a typical bakhtiar design developed in hand tufted carpet. The origin of bakhtiar design is from Char Mahal province of Persia. This is a very special and evergreen design which is always in fashion, it gives different a different look which does not stick to any particular or typical floral design. The bakhtiar patterns were repetitions of squares or diamonds all through the carpet with floral designs in them and set off by a border. In a way the designs were geometric and less curvilinear than the other Persian patterns. However due to the many squares and blocks in the designs, they were more colorful and dense.
A typical bakhtiar design has at least 12-16 colors as compared to general Persian designs that have around 10 colors. In this rug you will see tan and wine red with accents of dark green, green, dull green, pink, peach/orange and red.

ABOUT HAND-TUFTING: Quality hand-tufted rugs offer traditional oriental and modern carpet designs at more affordable prices. The hand-tufted rug looks and feels very much like a hand-knotted rug, though they differ in construction methods. Rather than tying each knot by hand, a tufted rug achieves its look by way of a tufting gun from the back of the rug. Using the same fine wool and dyes achieves a quality finish.

Initial Care: Unroll, lay flat and vacuum the rug. Shedding, mild odors and rolled or wrinkled edges are normal/common when the rug is new. We recommend vacuuming once a day for the first five days to remove loose fibers; you may fill more than one canister or bag worth of loose fibers initially. Vacuum in all directions with your vacuum set at a low setting. Doing this will not harm or damage your rug; it will help decrease future shedding.
Routine care: Vacuum once every week or two; set your vacuum on a medium or high setting. You may still see wool fibers in your canister/bag but the amount will diminish over time. Seek a professional rug cleaner if in doubt. Use a rug pad underneath to help preserve the life of your rug and provide slippage protection. Clip all loose yarns; do not pull. Blot spills immediately; spot clean with warm water and mild soap.
We make every effort to ensure colors are represented accurately online. Due to possible variances in manufacturer dye lots, however, colors may vary slightly from what is depicted. Each rug is made by hand and uniquely original - minor variations may occur in size and color.
Whatever your style, there is no mistaking there are hundreds of different types of rugs from which to choose. It can be overwhelming, but try following these tips:
There are many elements that can cause damage to your rug. By protecting your rug from them, you can help keep it looking new, longer.
The first harmful element is the sun. Sun damage can appear in the form of fading or discoloration of your rug. To protect your rug against sun damage, you should place it in an area that doesn’t get much sunlight or use a window treatment to block the direct sun. Also remember how important it is to turn your rug once a year. This will ensure equal amounts of sun exposure over the life of your rug.
The second factor you should keep in mind is protecting your rug from water damage. Do not place potted plants directly on your rug. If you do, water can leak out of the pot and onto the rug. Moisture could potentially build there for weeks and ultimately weaken the foundation of your rug. Also, be mindful if it's in your entryway, dining or living areas. Rain droplets or spilled liquids should be dried immediately.
Lastly, you will want to protect your rug from your lovable pets. That’s right, cats and dogs can cause serious damage to rugs. Often times, dogs will use them as chew toys and cats will use them as claw-sharpening devices. Employ proper obedience methods in order to protect your rug from pet antics.
Process & Materials
The quality of a rug is often determined by two factors: process and materials. Handmade, natural material rugs may be more expensive than machine-made synthetic ones since hand-weaving is such a time-intensive process. While a hand-woven rug is considered quite luxurious, the machine-made rug process has been diligently perfected over the years. This is a good option to get the handmade look without the handmade price!
Materials used in rugs can also make a big impact on cost and quality. Wool is used in many countries, as it is a durable substance and seen as the most traditional material. Although this is the component of choice, less expensive synthetic materials are also common in the man-made marketplace today. The type of material used often varies by the country of origin. For example, Persian rugs usually incorporate soft wool, while silk is the material of choice for Chinese rugs.
