The 8713 Antique Bakhtiari Khedive Multi from Louis de Poortere is part of our multicoloured rugs collection.
Featuring a classic floral diamond pattern in feather shaped frames and inspired by traditional Persian designs woven by the Bakhtiari people for centuries, the Bakhtiari live in the mountainous part of Khuzistan and Isfahan provinces in Iran. The design was retrieved from the "Muskabad archives" of Louis De Poortere and given the "distressed treatment". Antique Bakhtiari rugs are machine woven on jacquard Wilton looms by Louis de Poortere using high quality cotton chenille yarns. Over a century of skill and craftsmanship is woven into each rug with multiple layers of texture, heavy distressed areas and intricate stitching detail to give a true vintage and aged appearance. Woven in a 3 mm thick flat weave, chenille construction, each piece is hand finished with reinforced corners. Manufacturer recommends professional dry clean method or see James.eu.
