Many Pre-WWI Bijars are woven with wool pile and wool foundation. Post 1920 Bijar rugs transition into the more common wool pile and cotton foundation. Bijars noted as Kurdish Bijars often follow a style of weave more closely related to a village weave. Comparatively, such carpets will be thinner, slightly looser in weave, and commonly the foundation is found to be wool for a longer period of time than most traditional Bijar rugs. The traditional Bijar carpet is considered among the most enduring of Persian rugs: among the rug community many nickname Bijars "the iron rug" due to the reliable longevity. Bijar carpets, like many Oriental rugs, often last for many generations; the difference being Bijars often are found to endure great traffic.
