An excellent quality rug with lovely deep colours from all natural dyes. The rug has little evidence of ware and is in very good condition. Around 100 years old, the warp is made from goats wool and the weft sheep's wool indicating that the rug was made by nomadic people.
Traditional Pakistan Bokhara Carpet (also spelled Bukhara) are among the most popular hand knotted rugs in the world. Many believe that the design originated within or near the (Uzbek) city of Bokhara, but it is actually from the nomadic Tekke tribe in Central Asia (the Tekke tribe's rugs were predominantly traded in the markets of Bokhara, however, and eventually acquired the name of the city).
