"Is this rug genuinely hand-knotted, or just looks like a hand-knotted rug. Your description of the rugs is very vague (the description says weave type is hand-knotted and in Product Features it says hand-crafted). You describe the art of weaving but the description of the rug never mentioned that it was woven by the Nomad Tribes in Pakistan."
We ordered two of these for our stairs. The rugs were promptly delivered. They were exactly as described in their description. Would have been great for stairs, but unfortunately the total length of the two was longer than what we needed for our stairs. Cutting the extra length was out of the question for the hand-knotted rugs. Therefore we had to return them and go for a machine made rug because of the length requirements of our stairs. The return was completely hassle-free, and our purchase price minus the shipping cost was promptly refunded. Overstock's customer service is unbeatable. This rug is excellent for use anywhere if the size is appropriate. We certainly recommend it....

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.
Please keep in mind that new wool rugs may initially shed and have a natural capacity to shed for several months after purchase. This is normal due to the nature of construction of most wool rugs and not a defect. Click here to view our Wool Rug Care Guide.

Product came on time; colors were as depicted on screen; quality is very good; looks great on dark hardwood floor against ss-fridge; have to use rug pad underneath to prevent it from moving around; hides dirt/dog fur really well. Very pleased and would recommend.Read More
One of my favorite designs but in a different color (almost all are red). Have 3, all look fabu. Just had my old growth wide pine floors done and they look super with these rugs.Read More
This rug is fantastic value. The runner has more of a golden background rather than beige, but this works with my decor better, so I'm thrilled. It has good weight to it but is not a super heavy rug. It definitely needs a rug pad to keep it from moving around. The design is lovely, not overly intricate, probably machine woven since the lines are straight. The other colors in the rug are black, gray, a gray-green and a coppery color. Just beautiful. Customer service at Overstock was great since the first rug I received had two lines going across that looked like some sort of oily stain. They replaced the rug immediately. The first rug, by the way, had a khaki colored background so you should expect that there will be variations in color from rug to rug. Overall, I am totally thrilled with this runner and the price ($211) can't be beat anywhere. Keep up the great work, Overstock!Read More
