Bachtiar or Bakhtiari rugs:
In the Zagros mountains, west of the city of Isfahan around the city Shahr-e-Kurd, reside the Bakhtiar nomads. The carpets are sold under the common name Bakhtiar (also Baktiar, Bachtiar and Bakhtiari ). The carpets are made of durable wool, and are beaten very hard, which makes them thick and solid and they are considered to be among the most durable of Persian carpets.
