We just purchased a rare Antique Persian Bakhayesh 13’3″ x 14’9″ circa 1870. The rug was woven in a village in Northwest Persia, in the state of Azerbaijan. The dyes are natural, some coming from roots of vegetables and others from fruits. The pattern was designed as they wove the rug and is non-symmetrical because it is a village rug. Often antique rugs are crooked because of the nature of the wooden looms that were used to create them.
