Rug of the Month

I don't usually take rugs "on consignment", but when this Green Bokhara was waved in front of me, I couldn't help but drool. First of all, Bokhara is a trade center in the Soviet Republics whose name is given to many rugs both sold there and beyond. It has come be be synonymous with Tekke Tribal type rug, with its ever repeating "guls" (or elephants foot). These have traditionally come come dark red backgrounds, and a green one is very rare. This specimen was woven in Pakistan in the 1990's and is in near-mint condition. Woven with approx. 300 knots per square inch (kpsi) it is both supple and intricate... I am offering it on my website at "under wholesale", or about $25 per square foot. It measures 11 ft. 5 inches by 9 ft. 2 inches. The picture doesn't do it justice and even if you are not in the market for such a piece, its uniqueness is worth the time of a look. By the way that's Green, Mint (condition) NOT Mint Green (color)
