Vintage Wool Pre-Owned Rugs Pakistani Bukhara 65 x 185 cm
The term "Pakistani Bukhara" is used to describe modern Tekke-faced rugs made in Pakistan, which are among the most popular handmade rugs in the world. Using a combination of NZ worsted and local Pakistani wool on a cotton base, the Pakistani Bokhara has a very soft and thick pile. The length of the pile varies depending on the clipping of the particular rug. Sometimes the pile is intentionally left significantly longer, called "double pile", resulting in extra thickness and depth - although there is a trade-off with the clarity of the pattern. The manufacturing of carpets in Pakistan began in the same way as in India and when the country was separated from India most of the weavers, which were muslims, moved to the Pakistanian side. Most of them found jobs in Lahore and Karachi, and at the same time the government began to support the import of quality yarn. In Pakistan, carpets are manufactured nowadays with fine Australian wool yarn making these carpets very similar to silk carpets. Carpets with a high knot density provides strong durability at a lower price than its Persian parallels. The Pakistani carpets, which today are mass-produced (in Lahore, Karachi and Rawalpind), are divided into Mori carpets and Persian where 90% of the Mori carpets have a Bochara-like pattern and other Turkmenistan patterns. Ziegler carpets, that are manufactured in Pakistan, have patterns that are copied from older traditions in the Arak district, Persia. Carpets are also being manufactured here that gathers inspiration from Caucasian carpets and are sold as "Kazak Fine".
