Bokhara rugs, also known as Bukhara rugs, are a type of hand-knotted rug that originate from the Bukhara region in Uzbekistan. They are highly esteemed for their fine craftsmanship, distinctive designs, and luxurious feel. Here are some key features and information about Bokhara rugs:

Key Features:

  1. Design and Patterns:
    • Gul Motifs: The most characteristic feature of Bokhara rugs is the use of repeating geometric motifs called “guls.” These motifs are often octagonal or diamond-shaped and are arranged in rows across the rug.
    • Elephant’s Foot (Tekke) Motif: One of the most common types of gul is the “elephant’s foot” motif, associated with the Tekke tribe, one of the main Turkmen tribes that produce these rugs.
    • Borders: Bokhara rugs typically have multiple borders with intricate patterns, framing the central field of guls.
  2. Colours:
    • Rich and Deep Hues: Traditional Bokhara rugs often feature deep reds, burgundy, maroon, and rich blues, although modern versions may include a wider range of colours.
    • Contrast: Light colours such as ivory, beige, and gold are used to highlight the main motifs and add contrast.
