Welcome to the Rug of The Month Club

This month's rug is an antique Turkamon from Persia (aka Iran). These tradition designs with their "Gul" pattern are some of my personal favorites... and are very often called "Bokhara's", from the city in the SSR's which is a center of trade, and therefor often purchased there. It is said that each tribe has its own characteristic gul and that precise origins can thus be determined. These "Red Rugs" are often thin and supple and have an air of native culture often absent in many of the Persian "city rugs". This one is about 6 x 9 feet and is in what I call Antique Very Good condition. Look for it shortly on the Rug Crazy Wed-site. Happy Holidays to all!
