Turkoman 190x132cm


North East Persia

Circa 1970

Historically, the Tekke Turkoman were known for the finest tribal rugs. By the 1960's this position was being undermined by the Mori Bokhara copies from Pakistan. The Tekke sheep had the superior hard-wearing wool and combined with the introduction of a fine pure silk warp they began to weave a market winner. Unfortunately the price was too high so not that many rugs eventuated. 

We occasionally find a true vintage specimen from a Turkoman home and here is an example presented at an attractive price.
