Antique Bakhtiari carpets, produced in the Zagros Mountains of Iran, are one of the few types that can encompass nomadic tribal as well as urban Persian design. Many Bakhtiaris are in fact tribal pieces that rely upon a repertoire of abstract geometric and animal motives. But Bakhtiari weavers are also acclaimed for their ability to produce sophisticated medallion allover, and garden designs of classical Persian inspiration, although with an added vitality and boldness. The wool quality and rich color of Bakhtiari antique rugs are also notable, whether they utilize an urban or more tribal design idiom.
