Bukhara Rug. Uzbekhistan. Allover design Fine Wool Pile.


This rug was woven in the city of Bukhara, which centuries ago was the capital of the Persian Empire, 6th century BCE.

The design of this rug originated in Bukhara, and is one of the most frequently seen patterns woven in Eastern weaving centres including Pakistan and India, though superior quality examples are woven in Bukhara itself. The design is formed by a repetition of the gol  (rose) motif, which is traditional to the region and is presented in varying rhomboidal forms. The border is woven with a continuous rectilinear drawn repeat pattern, and typically seen multiple secondary borders. The colours are traditional to the region with a subtle red background  with dark blue /black and ivory as supporting colours. The pile is very compact and close cropped allowing for crisp definition of the pattern details.
