Vintage Pakistani Hand-Woven Oriental Blue Bukhara Rug from Ikea, 1960s
Delivering from: Warsaw, Poland
This hand-woven oriental carpet was made in Pakistan during the 1960s for Ikea. Traditionally flat woven and dyed in shades of navy blue and beige. It was woven using natural wool and cotton. Due to the appropriate treatment, the wool has a beautiful shine. It has a high knot density which makes the carpet durable. Nowadays Bukhara carpets are considered to be one of the best carpets made in Pakistan. The rug is decorated with repeating geometric patterns. Hand-woven carpets are made using techniques that give parts structural integrity. They are made of hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of threads tied to a cotton or woollen rug base. Hand-knotted rugs are made by passing the warp through the weft of the carpet multiple times. These techniques ensure that each part of the carpet is an integral part of the carpet structure and is less prone to falling apart. The production of carpets in Pakistan is similar to the production in India.
This carpet is in original vintage condition. It has signs of age-related wear. One part of the side is frayed. The carpet will be professionally cleaned and ready for use.
