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 took a leap of faith buying a rug online but since it was for my bathroom and the price was right I took a chance. The colors a vibrant and true to the photo online. The rug is not as plush as I was expecting but not enough of a issue to return.Read More
This is a nice rug for a good price. However, the rug I received is a deep burgundy color, not the more orange tone shown on the website. As a result, I can't use it on my teak floor. Have to swap with a rug that's currently in the bedroom. The pattern in my rug is beige, not gold as the previous reviewer stated. I called Overstock to see if these pieces come in color variations, and they just went off the online catalog, saying it "just came in one color". The reason I'm giving this 4 stars and not 5 is because the colors were not as expected. Otherwise, no problem detected, but we have not really "used" it yet.Read More
