Beautiful old vintage Turkoman main rug in good overall condition. Some minor wear in a few small areas but no holes or structural problems. No stains. Unusual lovely blues mixed in with the traditional Turkoman madder reds.

Wool on cotton warp. Typically, the weavers use all wool but cotton structure allows for a finer weave, and tends to maintain shape a bit better over the decades. This carpet was skillfully woven, the wool kept short to show off the wonderful Bukhara gul design.

The rug has been professionally washed–it is clean and ready to use. Soft supple wool.

This rug was woven in Afghanistan or Turkmenistan. 1960s. The size is 9 ft. 9 in. by 6 ft. 3 in. Not necessarily a good choice for a heavy foot traffic area or under a table. Moderate foot traffic is a better option.

Turkoman rugs are typically a nomadic textile made by tribes in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, and northeastern Iran. These tribes include the Salor, Saryk, Tekke, Youmut, Arabchi, Chodor, and Ersari tribes. These rugs tend to have a background that is red or redish-brown in color, and the motif is usually geometric.

Most Turkoman rugs feature the octagonal gul –either as large medallions or in a repeating array.

Gul is an old Persian word for flower or rose, and also appears in Turkish. Traditionally, distinctive guls indicated individual tribal affiliations.

The price of this rug is $479. Shipping is $47 or free with local pickup.

Fantastic old vintage Turkoman Ersari main rug in excellent overall condition. (Waves in 4th photo are just from folding and will disappear quickly once used on floor.) Displays the fantastic Tauk- Nuska Gul medallions! (First and last photos.) 100% natural wool.

Out of my personal collection but I’ve never had any place to put it! Afghanistan or Turkmenistan origin. These are very hard to find in this condition.
