Fine Old Turkaman (TUR104)
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.
