This fine hand woven rug features a design that is probably one of the most widely recognised throughout the rug world, that of the ‘Elephants Footprint’ or ‘Gul’ to give it it’s proper name.
However this design is (like so many Oriental Rug designs) ‘borrowed’ from elsewhere, in this case the centuries old Turkoman Bokhara design. The design is widely perceived to have originated in Pakistan itself but in fact made its way to Pakistan via the wandering nomadic Balouchi Tribes people who, over the centuries, have occupied areas of N.E. Iran, N.W. Afghanistan and Turkmenistan as well as parts of the Caucasus.
This fine rug measures 4 feet long by 2 feet 7 inches wide. ( 1.22 x 0.78 metres ).
