1920 Bibibaft Bakhtiari Carpet with Pure Wool Pile and Organic Vegetal Dyes



This 1920 Bibibaft Bakhtiari is an improvisational piece of exceptionally fine quality. It consists of a cotton warp, handspun wool weft and hand-knotted handspun wool pile, and its rich blues, reds, pinks and greens were all created using natural organic vegetable dyes. As a "Bibibaft," or "queen weave," this carpet was woven by a very high-ranking weaver within the village, usually the wife of the village chief. The design is very unique not only because of its superior execution but also its central medallion. The 16 points that make up the medallion are a spiritual symbol representing the 16 dimensions that the Bakhtiari believe to exist, eight of them being inward and eight of them being outward as depicted here. The size of this rug is 4'6" x 6'9", and it is in excellent vintage condition.
