During the eighteenth century, lush and sumptuous gardens and enclosed courtyards were a symbol of pride and status. So, the garden motif is very common in the Bakhtiari rugs. This medallion rug has about sixty years old in a very good condition. This rug is hand-woven by the semi-nomadic Bakhtiari tribes people residing in western Iran. Most weavers use fine quality wool from their own sheep, which is spun by hand and then given intense coloration mainly with vegetable dyes extracted from local plants.
