Short Story Long:
Turkaman and Bokara rugs are in almost every textile enthusiast's collection. The pattern is simple, yet interesting, and it is an easy pattern to spot if you're a novice rug collector. The Turkaman tribe reside close to the city of Bokara which is now situated in modern Turkmenistan. The tribespeople can also be found in Northeast Iran and parts of Western Afghanistan.
This particular rug is a great weave and in excellent shape. The reason why I listed it as "Very Good" instead of "Excellent" is because there is just a hint of trapedzoid action going on with this rug. It is just a tad longer on the one side, but unless I told you that, you probably wouldn't notice it. Because the rug is all wool, it will be able to take a beating in any heavy traffic area, including a foyer. I think this rug has a really neat retro vibe and would look great with some mid-century modern furniture. Give it a try!
