Bokhara style rugs are easily identified by the bold, allover pattern of guls. A gul is a rosette or floral medallion, as the word gol (or gul) is the Farsi word for flower. These can appear in many different styles, with each having a specific meaning. Round ones symbolize celestial bodies, such as stars or something larger such as the sun or moon. There are geometric shapes as well, —sometimes known as “elephant’s feet”—which also feature delicately woven designs in the middle of them. These rugs are usually soft and silky to the hand, with heavily-matured earth tones; typically red, sienna, brown, and green.
