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 bought this runner to complement two small rust bokharas I bought from Overstock two years ago. It is amazing that the shade is the same as well as the quality. Soft and expensive looking. The price is very satisfactory. Love it!Read More
Bought one Bokhara runner in red and one in rust. I have a red Bokhara rug, and these are clearly not of the same quality as my rug (which I did not get from here). They are much thinner than the rug I have, but they are acceptable for a runner with a pad underneath. The colors are very nice. In the end, not paying shipping and the convenience of having it delivererd made it a good purchase, but not an incredible deal by any means.Read More
I'd give this Rust colored Bokhara runner 5 stars on appearance; it looks impressive and the colors/design in the online photo are dead on. I'm disappointed in the pile height. The online description specifies .5 inch pile. The pile height on this rug doesn't come close to this and is much thinner. Wondering if I had been sent another similar but different rug, I made a point of re-checking and comparing the data on the back of the actual rug with what I can see online and they checked out. I've bought other rugs/runners with .5" pile and this is just much thinner by comparison. A 1/2" foam pad under it made enough of a difference that I decided to keep it but I remain dubious about the overall value and would recommend checking out other Overstock.com similar alternatives.Read More
Great price for a wool bokhara carpet of this size. The colors appear just as in the photo. Will probably buy more worldstock carpets.Read More
