Bokhara rugs originate from the Tekke tribe from the area of Bokhara in Central Asia. The design is dominated by a repeating pattern of octagonal guls. An octagonal gul design is also known as an elephant’s foot. These guls are commonly dark blue, black or brown with ivory accents. Today Bokhara design rugs are made across the carpet-weaving world, including Pakistan, Iran, India, Turkey, Afghanistan and Central Asia. The skeleton of the rug is made of cotton, while the pile is knotted in a soft blend of lamb's wool.
