Antique Bakhtiari rugs were woven in Zagros Mountains of Iran, and mainly woven by villagers and nomads of the area. The pattern of Bakhtiari rugs is mainly geometric, sometimes semi-geometric, and seldom curvilinear. The designs tend to be very dense, and vibrant colors, such as deep reds, bright blues, navy, greens, brown and beige were commonly used.
The most common Bakhtiari design is the garden design, which consists of square, rectangular, diamond, or hexagon compartments filled with floral motives, such as a willow tree, a cypress tree, a grapevine, a vase, or a bird sitting on a branch. Each compartment has a different color and motive from its neighboring compartments.
