Bokara Traditional Area Rug
Bokaras are usually made with high quality wool from Australia or New Zealand, which gives them their soft and luxurious feel. Modern Bokaras get their silky appearance from cotton processed to look and feel like real silk. In more expensive rugs, actual silk will be used in the weaving process. The quality of these antique rugs can vary greatly. Some are knotted with only 50 knots per square inch, while the finer quality rugs are made with over 300 knots per square inch. Bokaras are typically a thinner and more flexible hand-woven rug.
