Description

Superb Quality Hand Knotted Afghan Rug Turkoman Rug Tekke Design. Tekke carpet, floor covering woven by the Tekke Turkmen, the major population group of Turkmenistan. Although elements of the tribe still migrated with their flocks until the Soviet era, most of them were sedentary during the 20th century. Their rugs are the most easily identifiable among the Turkmen, as the quartered gul (characteristic motif) of their larger carpets has become something of a trademark There are also many tent bags and ensis, which are used as scatter rugs in the West.

Tekke rugs almost always show various shades of red as a field colour and are all wool except for patches of pink silk on some of the earlier pieces. The best of them are the most finely woven of Turkmen rugs, with short pile and lustrous wool. 296C
