Classic Turkoman designs known as Bokharas were originally made by nomadic tribes. Bokhara rugs were named for the city where they were once collected which was once an important trade center in Turkestan. Bokhara rugs are most commonly a deep shade of red with a repeating pattern of octagonal guls that resemble small medallions. An Octagonal gul design is also known as an elephant?s foot. These guls are commonly dark blue, black or brown with ivory accents.The shapes and colors of guls varied from one tribe to another, these differences were traditionally used to identify the source of the rug. In traditional Bokharas, wool was generally used as the foundation material. The pile is higher, the wool is soft, and the foundation is usually cotton in Pakistan and Indian Bokharas.
