Description

Wonderful Antique Tekke Bokhara rug woven in the early 20th century, classical repeating ‘Gul’ design in the main field, plus some lovely tribal motifs in the border.  The dye change we can see throughout is known as ‘Abrash’ which means the weaver mixed up different batches of dye.  So the red dyes change subtly and provide the rug with an abundance of character.

 Great little antique rug for in front of the fire, a study, bedroom or in a hall.

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.
