Bokhara rugs and hallway runners are hand-woven all over Pakistan, southern Afghanistan and northern India. Wondering nomadic tribes hand-knot the vast majority of these rugs before selling them to exporters to be shipped all over the world, a lot now turning up in western Europe and America. Bokhara rugs are made in a selected range of colours with red and rose pink been the most popular. The design is referred to as the elephants foot design or the gul design, locally Bokhara rugs are also know as Bukhara rugs. The pile is woven from soft pure wool, normally from the very best New Zealand wools.
