Bijar is a city and capital of Bijar County, Kurdistan Iran. This and close surrounding areas of rug weaving are extremely well known for distinct technical characteristics and designs in Persian rugs. Often, carpets from Bijar are informally addressed as: Bijar, Kurdish Bijar, and Halvaei Bijar. These designations hint to the structural differences, and the variations which are often found to be characteristic of each. Bijar carpets often feature traditional main colors with spectacular, vibrant saturation and contrast. Bijar carpets are well known for the hard-wearing wool, extremely dense weave, sturdy construction, knot density and durability compounded by hard packing of each row of knots. Often Bijar rugs made in the mid 1800's all the way through today are found to have a more substantial construction and tightly woven.
