All over floral design, Persian Bakhtiari village of crisp, eye catching colors dramatically set on indigo blue field with a natural wool border. One of the most striking rugs we have ever seen. 

Within Iran, one of the most fascinating tribal groups is the Bakhtiari Tribe. Immortalized in the 1925 documentary, "Grass" by Merian Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack who would later create the seminal fantasy/sci-fi classic, "King Kong," the Bakhtiari tribe makes some of the most striking rugs. While only a small percentage Bakhtiari live the pastoral nomadic life of seasonal migration to winter and summer grazing lands, the three week trek over craggy hills, snow capped mountains and across icy rivers still inspires awe and respect. 

Thank you.
