Known for their symmetrical octagon patterns, Bokhara Oriental Rugs are handmade in Pakistan using one of the oldest weaving techniques. Authentic Pakistani Bokhara Rugs are becoming a commodity, but RugKnots has a wide selection of Bokhara Rugs for sale at discount prices.
Hand knotted on a weaving loom to exacting standards, these high quality Bokhara rugs take four months to complete, and are weaved by our artisans with premium-grade wool imported from the hills of New Zealand and the finest local wool farmers in Pakistan.
Originating from the city of Bukhara in modern day Uzbekistan – a World Heritage Site and historic center of commerce and scholarship on the ancient Silk Road trade route - Bokhara rugs were originally woven by the Tekke tribe, a nomadic Central Asian people.
As these beautifully intricate rugs were mainly sold in the markets of Bukhara, they came to be named after the city itself – later also known as ‘Bokhara’. Often featuring a distinctive elephant foot motif in their original form, it’s fair to say this type of rug has remained globally popular for centuries.
Our Unique Bokhara Rug Making Process
What sets our Bokhara rug collection apart is that during manufacturing, the pile is intentionally left significantly longer than average - to create a lavish, luxurious depth and thickness.
This rare practice is known as a ‘double pile’, and thanks to our skillful artisans, we manage to achieve a silk-like feel underfoot together with an intense design clarity usually missing in lesser deep pile Bokhara rugs.
