Products in the town of the same name in Kurdistan in the north west Persia. Bidjar describes those Persian carpets which are immediately distinguishable from others by the thickness of their pile. They have long been manufactured in the city of Bidjar and its environs. The patten of the Bidjar carpets is hardly ever geometrical, but marked by great diversity, ranging from the smallest Herati pattern to very large palmettes, like those in the “vase carpets”. The background may be uniform or covered with a design of corners and medallions or without medallions. Bidjar, a large city to the north west of Hadamdan has long been important as a carpert making center. The characteristic of the Bidjar carpet is a comparatively long pile on a twofold warp. The lengths of yarn so protrude from the foundation that a Bidjar carpet can scarcely be folded in the usual manner, with the back outside. To do so might easily break the warp and weft threads. Bidjar carpets should therefore be folded face outwards.
