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.

No buyer's remorse here. I hesitated about buying a rug online, but the reviews of this were so stellar that I just knew I couldn't go wrong. It is true to the color that it looks like on-screen (a rich, regal, jewel-toned red), and is soft and silky underfoot. I'm thinking of buying another runner just like it--and a matching room-sized rug, too! Delivery was fast and hassle-free. A great experience overall.
Needed a runner to coordinate with the rugs my husband brought back from Afghanistan and this is perfect. The Bokhara style matches perfectly and the quality of the knotting and wool is very similar. Best is the price, very reasonable. Color in picture is pretty accurate, the wool gives the rug a slight sheen in certain light. Overall a luxurious and expensive looking piece with good value for $.
I am very satisfied with the purchase of this item. The quality is excellent and the rug is thick and luxurious and of outstanding quality. The colors are beautiful and true to the pictures. The rug is in my hallway and adds beauty and luxury to my home. Although it is a little pricy it is worth it because it will last for many years and is hand woven and really, really beautiful. I am very pleased.
Four stars because the color just isn't quite what was depicted on the site. Definately more of a rust than a vibrant red, but still and not a show stopper. Nice pile-- not particularly plush, but soft. Remember people, a bokhara will shed for a while. My other bokhara rugs shed a bit but have lasted and performed wonderfully for years, so I expect this will be similiar.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Close but a bit more rust colored thana vibrant red
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be a good quality bokhara
