FROM 1800 THROUGH THE 1920s
Herti and Mina Khani designs are very common in Bijar Kurdish rugs. You can also find medallion and all-over patterns with multiple borders.Bijar carpets are counted among the best oriental carpets for everyday use because they are extremely tough and rigid. Ground colors are harmonious, a product of the blending of subtly shaded patterns. Dark blue and a strong red predominate. Brown and yellow are also used, but green is rare. Some old Bijars are woven with combinations of light and dark blue.
