Bidjar carpets are immediately distinguishable from others by the thickness of their pile. They have long been manufactured in the city of Bidjar and its surrounding regions.The pattern of the Bidjar carpets is scarce geometrical, but marked by great diversity, ranging from the smallest Herati pattern to very large pallets, like those in the “vase carpets”. The back base may simply be uniform or covered with a design of corners and medallions, or even without medallions.
Bidjar, a large city to the north west of Hadamdan has long been an affluent carpet-manufacturing center. The characteristic of the Bidjar carpet is a comparatively long pile on a two-fold 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 facing the outside. If one was to do so, it could easily break the warp and weft threads. Bidjar carpets should therefore be folded faced outwards.
