Carpets, tent and camel trappings, and other knotted pile textiles woven by the Turkmen tribes of Central Asia are some of the most widely admired and passionately collected of all “oriental rugs”.The relative geographic and linguistic remoteness of the Turkmen coupled with a complex history of tribal movement and interaction have created barriers to the study of Turkmen weaving. Furthermore, the clues used to determine when, where, and by what tribe a rug was made – design, color palette, weave structure, and yarn. This carpet, which combines design features derived from certain Persian rugs, a Turkmen color sensibility, and atypical yarn usage is one of these idiosyncratic examples.The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco holds a collection of Turkmen carpets and related trappings from Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, Uzbekistan, and northeast Iran that is one of the finest in the world. The skill and artistry of Turkmen weavers is clearly evident in this key example.
