This rug is designed to look like a hand-knotted Bijar Rug. Bijar (or Bidjar) Kurdish rugs are often called the Iron Rugs of Iran. The Bijar was a heavy durable rug that has been very popular in the United States. They are often referred to as "Man Rugs", because the design is more geometrical than floral.

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.
