Turkomen Tribes

 

Turkomen weavers are famous for a wide assortment of weaving types, including main carpets, smaller rugs, bags of various kinds, long tent bands, nuptial trapping, and other objects intended only for family use. The Turkomen tribal family played an important role in carpet making as a business enterprise for several centuries, if not longer, and geared its output for regional markets as well as distribution in Russia, in other parts of Asia and throughout Europe.

 

The Turkomen tribes are believed to have originated in the remote steppes of Asia at least two thousands years ago.

 

A man named Oguz founded the first tribe, he then had six sons  who each in turn had four sons making them twenty four clans of the Turkomen tribes, such tribes are Tekke, Yomut, Saryk, Ersari, Salor etc.

 

The geology of the Turkomen tribes in important in attempting to understand what might loosely be called the ‘heraldic’ motifs of the Turkomen carpets, now known to us as ’guls’. They were known as heraldic motifs due to similar traits with the British family, with its crests, coat of arms and armorials.

This one is woven with good quality wool and is hard wearing as well as being decorative and beautiful. The design is very interesting and is a very primitive way of showing tribal motifs, there are many types of gul medallions which signify different meaning.
