I tried to choose between two same type of Bokhara rugs. This one had a lot of good reviews but doesn't have the number of knot per square inch count, as opposed of 100 for the other one. Can you tell me if you have knot information for this one. It would really help me make decision. Thanks.

Story Behind the Art:
Tribal bokhara rugs are made by nomads in Pakistan who spend years weaving each intricate detail into these rugs, specifically Mr. Mehta and his family. The original design of the rug originated in Turkmenistan. They are made on portable wooden looms typically with wool pulled from the tribe's sheep each year. They obtain their dyes naturally from local vegetables, flowers, tree bark, minerals, and insects. Graphs, or blueprints for the patterns, are used more often today but true masters create signature designs and color combinations showing their skill.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
All rug sizes are approximate. Due to the difference of monitor colors, some rug colors may vary slightly. We try to represent all rug colors accurately. Please refer to the text above for a description of the colors shown in the photo.

I am very picky with persian carpets, and I would never buy without checking the number of knots per square inch, the hight of the pile, fiber content, whether is knotted or hand knotted. I would never buy "hand tafted", and sometimes the website description can be misleading. In this case, the description is accurate, and I am very happy with this carpet. I wish the color would have been lighter and not that dark burgundy, but it is a very nice carpet and I am happy with it. I don't have the exertise to be sure that the carpet is truly "hand knotted" versus "machine knotted", but for this price, really it is a nice buy.Read More
I purchased the Pakistani Pak Bokhara Hand-knotted Red Rug (4' x 6') to go in my walk through kitchen. It looks very rich against the dark walnut floors and oak cabinets. The colors are deep and the photo didn't do it justice. The carpet is gorgeous and is currently sitting on a non-slip pad, but if you want a spongy feeling underfoot you may consider pairing with a premium pad.Read More
I ordered 2 of these to use in a new bedroom and was so happy when I received them. Beautiful colors and feel. They add warmth and depth to the room and were just the look we wanted.Read More
The first rug I received was not quite as pictured. It was 4x6 and the same deep red color, but there were 2 rows of medallions instead of 3. Additionally, there seemed to be some type of colorless liquid that had been splashed on it, so I immediately contacted Overstock to order a replacement. They emailed me a prepaid UPS label for the return and sent the replacement rug right out to me which arrived in just 2 days. 5 stars for customer service! And when I unrolled the new rug, I was very impressed by the feel, color, and overall quality. 5 stars for that too! It is pretty much the shade of red pictured in natural light if you are standing at that particular end of the rug. As I have recently learned about hand knotted rugs, the threads actually all point in one direction, so if you're standing where the thread is pointing toward you, looking against the grain, the color will look deeper and richer than if you're standing on the side where the threads are pointing away from you. I assume this is why some reviews say that the color is much deeper than pictured. It depends on where you're standing.Read More
This is an absolutely beautiful rug that has received compliments from every guest we've had over. There was no shedding and the rug feels silky soft. Great value!Read More
Perfect color, received rug the next day that I ordered , excellent rug, looks better than picture, very rich in appearance , thinking about ordering two more rugs. Very pleased., can't say enough good things about service and quality. thank You.Read More
The other reviews are right - this is a nice quality rug. The pile is so soft, that I wonder if it is actually 100% wool (there's no origin/materials tag on the rug). Not experiencing any shedding. I can't give a rug five stars without knowing how it will wear, but this one certainly is a strong starter!Read More
This is a quality rug, however it was too large for our entryway and the fringe was over a heating vent. Apparently it is 4 ft. 1 in. by 6 ft. 1 in. and not exactly 6 X 4 as I thought when I ordered it.Read More
This is exactly what I wanted. If it wears well, then it will be a great rug. If not, then... It is beautiful and the pattern is common. I purchased a larger one 12 years ago from another company.Read More
This is a great comfortable rug that I have under my desk at home. I recently moved and the rug didn't flatten where it had weight on it - it still looks great. The only thing to know is that, like other reviewers pointed out, the rug is a little darker than what's pictured. The reds are more of a red wine. But it still looks great and I love it.Read More
