Place of origin

This dreamy rug with a typical Buchara pattern was knotted in Pakistan. Bukhara ( sometimes also Bokhara) is an oasis city in Uzbekistan, which is located along the former Silk Road. Although no rugs were knotted in Bukhara itself, the city gave its name to many oriental rugs because they were traditionally exported to the West from Bukhara. However, these rugs were traditionally knotted by various Turkmen tribes, especially in the Caucasus, Persia and Afghanistan.

Because Bukhara rugs are among the finest and most popular Central Asian rugs, their patterns have inspired Pakistani weavers. As a result, this rug with a typical Uzbek Bukhara pattern is knotted in Pakistan.

Patterns

The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Bukhara. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..

The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a excellent contrast to the center.

The colors old rose and black dominate the overall impression. The border features old rose, black and light red.

Condition

This Bukhara has had admirers before you. It was hand knotted about 1980. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Bukhara because we think it is as it is effect. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.

Material

The pile of this Bukhara has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The weft and warp threads of this Bukhara are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
