2'7x8'6 Bijar Runner

Bijar (or Bidjar) Kurdish rugs are often called the Iron Rugs of Iran. The Bijar was a heavy, durable rug that has been very popular in the United States. Now the Bijar rug tends to be a finer, thinner and more Sarouk-like rug. Most Bijar Kurdish carpets are woven by Gerrus Kurds in the Bijar area while a finer copy of Bijar carpets are woven by Afshar weavers who live in the Tekab and Tekkenteppe Area in Gerus.
