Everything You Need To Know About Bokhara Rug
The History of Antique Bokhara Rugs
Bokhara Rugs get their name from the city of Bukhara, Uzbekistan, where they were first made. Years ago, Bokhara Rugs were referred to Tekke Bokhara Rugs due to the head empire Turkoman tribe, Tekke. Emperors and high class people were known to indulge in Bokhara Rugs, which were considered a luxury. There are two types of Bokhara Tekke Rugs:
Royal Rugs - typically deep red rugs with symmetrical octagons along the entire rug
Princess Rugs - prayer rugs often used for the 5 daily prayers in the Muslim religion
We sell royal Bokharas in many deep red colors, but we also have very rare colors as well, such as green, pink, and grey.
How to Care for a Bokhara Rug
When you think of a Pakistani Bokhara, you can almost think of it like a shag rug because of its thick, deep pile. You definitely will not want to vacuum your Bokhara rug too often because it will begin to damage the softness of the pile. Therefore, you may want to consider placing your Bokhara rug in middle-to-low traffic volume areas. Areas such as bedrooms, dining rooms, and offices are perfect for luxury Bokharas. Once you feel the silky softness of the fine New Zealand wool, you will want to place a small Bokhara rug right below your bedside so it’s the first thing you feel when you get up every morning! For accidents and spills, we recommend our natural and easy cleaning solution of: 8 parts water, 1 part white vinegar, and a small drop of mild dish washing detergent. Simply dab the affected area of the rug with this solution. Prevent yourself from scrubbing or rubbing any stain/spill! We also recommend taking your Bokhara rug to a professional cleaner at least once every 2-3 years for a deep clean.

What is a Bokhara rug?
