Bidjar is the name of a small Kurdish village in western Iran. Kurdish carpets are often very strong and compact, which makes them extremely durable. The name Bidjar is synonymous with durability for carpet specialists. The weavers use heavy combs, made of metal and wood to beat the plot and knots, so the hair practically stands on end. This makes the surface of the hair very compact, which prevents small particles of dust and others from clinging to the carpet. The carpets are made with Turkish knots and are usually red and blue with beige elements.
The most common motif is that of Herat (also called fishing motive), but they are also made with medallions and floral motifs. They have a sober elegance. Its durability makes the carpets very suitable for very busy environments.
