Hand knotted in Pakistan.
“Pakistani Bokhara” is used to describe modern geometric faced rugs made in Pakistan, which are among the most popular handmade rugs in the world. Using a combination of New Zealand and local Pakistani wool on a cotton base, the Pakistani Bokhara has a very soft and dense velour. The height of the velour varies depending on the cutting of the particular rug. Sometimes the velour is intentionally left significantly longer, called “double velour”, resulting in extra thickness and depth – although there is a trade-off with the clarity of the pattern.
