Bokhara rugs are usually defined by their symmetrical patterns adorning the rug with diamond-shaped or oval motifs that repeat. The octagonal motifs are also known as an elephant’s foot and usually comes in dark blue, brown, black or ivory accents. As for the shapes of the motifs, these vary, depending on the tribe that makes them. The differences in the motifs were used to identify the source of each rug. Now, the materials used to make Bokharas, wool is the foundation material, and the pile is usually tied with Persian knots. Also, you will notice that it is clipped short. Such as this rug, Bokhara rugs are hand-knotted and always wool. You will NEVER find a Bokhara rug that’s synthetic or tufted. Rugs at this quality are typically referred to as Double-Knotted meaning the knots per square inch are twice as thick as the norm, meaning it requires much more wool to craft and is much more durable in general with an enhanced softness that comes with the more volume of wool in it. With a wool foundation, it reinforces the rug’s base to make sure it keeps its softness, especially at high usage areas.
