Bakhtiar carpets are made of strong and sturdy wool. Because the carpets – named after the nomads of the Bakhtiari tribe, who live in the Sagros mountains near the city of Isfahan are among the most robust of all Persian carpets. They are knotted from thick wool, which reduces their deterioration. It is not as fine and soft as the cork wool of other Persian carpets, but it has a clear advantage in its resistance to everyday stress.
