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.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
First of all I received the rug very quickly. I wanted two 8 x 10 rugs, so I ordered just one at first to make sure I liked it, the day I received the rug I ordered the second rug. The color of the rug is better than what you see online. It's a beautiful reddish/burgundy. The thickness is perfect not too thin, not too thick and you can't beat the price.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? the color is a beautiful red/burgundy.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality, just as expected.
I wish it has more knots per square inch. The picture, the description and the reviews made me think it was nice plush carpet. It is very very thin. may be 0.125 inches. I can even see the lines between the yarn. The design and the colors are good.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It was more like a thick blanket, not a rug.
I debated for a few days on whether or not to purchse this beautiful rug. I read the reviews as I always do and was convinced it was the
perfect rug for our TV/family room. I bought the 8 x 10 and am more than satisfied with the quality, color and natural beauty. I wanted something that would last (we have 5 sons!) but yet beautify our home. This is the perfect rug.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Absolutely
Please tell us about the quality of the product. High-end quality. Feels like silk to my feet.
The rug quality is also determined by the number of knots per square inch ranging from 30 to 600 knots. The more knots, the tighter the weave, creating a longer lasting and much more detailed rug.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 19, 2012
