The Bakhtiyari peoples are one of the largest and most prominent tribes of Iran. Living between the region of Khuzestan and Chaharmahal va Bakhtiari, they speak a dialect of Persian called Luri. Today, only a third of the tribe remains nomadic. The Bakhtiyari continue their craft tradition, often integrating fibers from the animals they travel with in their pieces.
Vintage and antique textiles have experienced a full life before making their way to our stores. A vintage item of exceptional quality should not be viewed as brand new, as it shows signs of a lifetime, or several, being used and appreciated by its original makers. Evidence of this well-lived life may be visible in slightly distressed fabric, loose threads, small tears, non-standard sizes and other unique imperfections.
