Baktiary
The Bakhtiar nomads live to the east of the city of Isfahan, in the surroundings of the city of Shahr-e-Kurd. The majority of them speak Persian or a Luri dialect, while some of them, those who live in the province of Khuzestan, speak Arabic.

Baktiary rugs have always been woven from the highest quality wool, and are extremely resistant to wear.
They are energetically beaten, a procedure which makes them very sturdy.
As such, they're considered the most resilient among Persian rugs.
