About Bakhtiari


Rugs and other weaving associated with the Bakhtiari tribe fall into two groups, the first of which can be described as 'Tribal' and the second as 'workshop'.  The Bakhtiari, like many of the other great tribal groups of Persia, were formed into a confederation in 1867 under the leadership of an Ilkhan (Supreme khan or leader); the particular Bakhtiari sub-tribe from the Ilkhans, the Zarasvand, were already very wealthy by this time, owning large amounts of the Chahar Mahall Valley to the east of the Zagros Mountains and also great areas to the west of the range around the town of Shustar.


The 'Tribal' weaving of the Bakhtiari consist not only of large and extremely ornate saddle-bags and other similar woven containers but also superb rugs woven on wool foundations, some of them very large; compared to the workshop rugs, these wool-based pieces are rare.  Workshop rugs, although also often of magnificent quality and sometimes huge, can be distinguished from the 'tribal' pieces by the fact that they have cotton foundations.  These were made in workshops of various sizes in the hundreds of villages in the Chahr Mahall Valley owned by the Great Khans of the Bakhtiari, as well as in towns in the same region, such as Shar Kord and Shalamzar, which they also owned.  In the first part of the twentieth century, when oil was struck on Bakhtiari land and the Great Khans owned a share of Persia's oil revenues, their enormous wealth enabled them to ensure that only the finest materials were used for their rugs.  Many such pieces bear inscriptions stating that were woven to the order of a particular khan, all of whom built huge mansions and palaces throughout the Char Mahall and elsewhere in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries'.


A number of well-known designs are associated with the Bakhtiari, including the so-called 'garden' or 'garden-tile' pattern of rectangles containing different motifs arranged all over the field, rugs with trees and flowers, and rugs with large central medallions of ornate shape surrounded by flowering branches.  Most Bakhtiari rugs, whether tribal or workshop, are dyed entirely with vegetable colors and are among the most splendid and vivid of all nineteenth and early twentieth century Persian weavings.  The Turkish knot is always used.

About Us

Enrich your home with an exquisite and masterfully made Oriental rug from Shabahang and Sons Oriental Rugs. The family of Shabahang and Sons has been in the carpet industry for over one hundred years. Third generation and owner, Jalal Shabahang, began working in the family business in Isfahan, Iran, when he was only 14, and by the age of 17, he opened his own store in Isfahan, Iran. In 1980, he opened the Milwaukee store with his brothers. In 1995, he and his sons, co-owners Behzad, Ben, and Bruce, open their store in downtown Milwaukee, and in May of 2000, he and his sons added a Waukesha/Brookfield store.

For more than 27 years, the Shabahangs have cultivated a reputation for excellence, based on their dedication to both their artisan vendors and their loyal clients. Shabahang and Sons has thousands of rugs on display, each of which has been hand selected by the Shabahangs who personally look at hundreds of rugs for each one that they ultimately choose for the company. The family has developed relationships with the artists that create the rugs and can tell the clients where a rug originates and details of the history, based, in part, on the diversity of each region’s weave, patterns, and colors.

The Shabahangs are highly trained and happily do all of the legwork for their clients to ensure that the clients get only the highest quality products. The showrooms combined cover more that 16,500 square feet, all of which is beautifully lit, making it a welcoming environment. You will find rugs that are new, semi-antique, or antique and that range from a dainty doormat to grand, palace-sized pieces.

Easily add elegance and quality to your favorite room with Oriental rugs from Shabahang and Sons. We at Shabahang and Sons take great pride, not only in our carpets, but also in our customers. You, as our client, will find in our carpets something you can enjoy for yourself and pass on to the next generation.
