The earlier Tekke main carpets tended to be more open and have less Gul’s and often a bigger design. Also mid 19th century Tekkes often have beautiful greens too, we have had some earlier pieces than this lovely carpet which in our opinion was made around 1910-1915.

Condition is exceptional with the wool pile very consistent all over and around 1cm in length, there are no low areas of pile or damage and the fringe ends and sides have been secured by our expert restorer. No bad dyes and some dark green dyes in the gul motifs too. We supply excellent underlay with every carpet purchased from us which adds great durability and safety. As this Tekke carpet is light to touch the underlay would stop it from moving on a variety of floor types.

Bokhara carpets and rugs woven at the end of the 19th century into the early 20th century were hand-woven by people of Russian Turkistan (Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan). These famous Bokhara designs have been copied over the years by weavers in Iran, Afghanistan, China and Pakistan. Bokhara rugs hold a high place in rug weaving history and are a traditional piece of art suitable for any interior decor. The repeating motif in the centre of this type of carpet is known as the ‘Gul’ design which is often thought to depict an elephants foot print.
