Baktiari Rugs

Feeling like a VIP? Like a person of importance? Maybe this mansion-size antique Persian carpet with a white field and an inscription indicating it was woven in the early 20th century for an oil-rich tribal ruler is for you. The cypresses and vase at the lower end usher one into a spring garden (on your estate?). Out of the vase and from thin flanking plants a verdant array of spring flowers explodes upwards in a directional pattern. Saturated greens yellows reds and blues detail the dense scatter fill of floral devices. The narrow red palmette border and the associated yellow and deep brown minors can scarcely contain the fields energy. The pattern is directional, pointing towards your very comfortable and luxurious seating furniture. With you on it, of course. This is not a minimalist carpet, but an exuberant one, for a buyer with total self- confidence. Tribal pieces are rare in larger sizes, the weave is compact and the condition is very good.

Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.

If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.

A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
