Bakhtiar rugs are named after the Bakhtiari nomadic tribes people, who live in the Sagros mountains south of Mahallat, between Hamadan and Isafahan (Iran). The Bakhtiari tribe, based in Chahar Mahaal and Bakhtiari, are well known for making rugs which commonly depict typical Persian gardens. The pattern is called Chesti. Since the early 19th century Bakhtiar rugs have become collector’s items.
