Pakistan Rug Bokhara

Great example in the picture of a standard Pakiistani Rug with the Bokhara design.  These designs are well reprsented in the market in all sizes and color patterns.  The distinct feature is the repeating guls found on the rug.  The red color shown here is one of the most favorite of American buyers of rugs since the beginning of making these types in the 1940s however, this particular rug is post 1980 and is the most commonly found type of rug from this region along with the Pakastani Peshwar design.  

The weavers in Paskistan do make other tribal pieces and replicate some of the Persian style of rugs from across the region however, normally the wool found in these rugs is not as soft as found in the authentic Persian rugs.  I personally own a couple of these rugs as they make great day-to-day rugs.  Note: don't use these types in areas known to have water issues such as kitchens and entry halls because, these rugs can have color bleed especially in the red portions and make it very difficult to color correct.

We recommend if you have one of these is to have them professionally cleaned by the experts in rug cleaning, like us.  Until next time Joe out!
