 In nice pile, finely woven and ready to be used on the floor. We provide excellent underlay with every rug we sell, which stops the rug from being dangerous on the floor.

Bokhara carpets and rugs woven at the end of the 19th century into the early 20th century were hand-woven by people of Russian Turkistan (Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). These famous Bokhara designs have been copied over the years by weavers in Iran, Afghanistan, China and Pakistan. Bokhara rugs hold a high place in rug weaving history and are a traditional piece of art suitable for any interior decor. The repeating motif in the centre of this type of carpet is known as the ‘Gul’ design which is often thought to depict an elephants foot print.
