Why did you choose this product?
We almost missed this since it was listed as a "geometric" pattern. Very happy with the look -- it was a touch expensive but the wool is very soft and weave quality looks first-rate....

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.

This rug is just beautiful! The red is very close to the shade pictured and the pattern is detailed. The wool is very soft and the pile is not so deep that it becomes a tripping hazard. Just for accuracy's sake, though, the rug is actually 2'1" wide and 6'2" long with an additional 2" of knotted fringe AT EACH END, bringing the total length to 6'6". This was not an issue for me but it could be for others.Read More
I love this rug. It looks expensive for the price. Deep colors all wool and hand made. How can you go wrong. It is in my family bathroom and brings a warmth to the room that I love. Overstock you have done it again.Read More

I am really happy with this rug. It is prettier then the picture. It is a bright cherry red. It is a very nice rug.Read More
These are very short pile rugs with dense stitching. They are made of wool but are very silky to the touch, which we love. We bought 3 rugs, in 2 sizes, and there is slight variation in colour between them...probably because they are hand dyed.Read More
Questions & Answers
Great color, perfect size and good pattern. The rug is hand knotted and the price is very good
i like the quality of these traditional rugs
it matches my existing carpet
Since this says the rug is hand-knotted can I be sure there is no backing? No latex, glue, cotton, etc? Thanks!
Hi egsrogers, after reviewing with our support staff we found that there is no backing, latex, glue or ect. in this rug. It is entirely hand-made with a hand-knotted weave type. I hope this helps, thanks for shopping with us.
