It is not an exaggeration to say that Iran’s cultural, artistic and even national identity is to some extent related and tied with carpet. The history of carpet weaving is an honorable and glorious one. And today’s artists in this field would not be successful without relying on this rich and fruitful past and using their own creativity. Therefore, the scholars of this field have to closely examine and investigate patterns and motifs of carpets and introduce their findings to the carpet society. This way, they can recall us of a great identity which sometimes is being concealed in the shadow of innovations. Here the authors have tried to investigate an important part of the history of this art in the Qajar era and to introduce the especial characteristics of patterns and motifs in Carpet Museum of Iran. The method of this research is descriptive and analytical one and the data is collected by library-based and field study methods. Appearance and extension of pictorial patterns, extension of “Bandie Golfarang”, “Bandie Boteh” patterns, extension of "rose" ," Boteh" and "Mahi dar Ham" motifs, naturalism and simple and unassuming style are among the characteristics of Qajar carpets.
