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 creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.

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

The repeating elements in the center field of this Bukhara rug have no specific center (so-called repeating pattern). The repeating pattern has a calming but not boring effect. Rugs with repeating patterns are also called patterned.

In the pattern of this Bukhara, the diamonds stand out in particular. Diamonds are a rhombus standing on a point, the four equal sides of which may be jagged, stitched or hooked. The diamond is one of the oldest basic forms in oriental rugs. It has a symbolic meaning in the Islamic world: it symbolizes the immortality of the soul. It is therefore very often found as a filler motif.

The background of this Bukhara is wine red. The border features wine red and rusty red.

Condition

You are not the first to appreciate this Bukhara. It has had owners before you who have cherished and used it. It was hand knotted about 1970. We have cleaned it thoroughly and restored it lovingly. Therefore it is in very good condition despite its age.

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.
