About Birjand Rugs: Birjand is a small town in northeastern Iran's Khorassan province. Birjand rugs typically have a very elegant pattern, similar to Herati but with a European look. These usually have a stylized round central medallion sitting in an open field of small fish on a sea of beige. The repeated borders resemble those of the Mahi, but the Birjand is more curvilinear. Overall, very intricate and detailed. Color schemes include beige and navy blue, with hints of burgundy and salmon.
