Pakistan rug with a twist

It is both wonderful and a bit frustrating when we get in a rug that doesn't fit into a particular rug type.

Luv-A-Rug received such a rug today. Identifying this rug was a bit tricky because it has a few traits from a a few different areas.

This rug has a doubled edge wrap on the sides-----Turkish like
The colours are subdued
The weaving style says Pakistan
The pattern is not typical Pakistan nor Turkish

We concluded that it is more Pakistan than anything with a very Art Deco design feel to it. The rug was probably made for sale in the western markets (North America and UK).

This is a more traditional look of a Pakistan rug.

Thanks for reading, RugloverMary
