Antique Tekke Turkmen Rug

190 x 110cm, 6'2" x 3'7"

    An Antique Tekke Turkmen Rug hand knotted in fine wool circa 1920. The rug features a classic geometric design of Gül (elephant’s foot) medallions, diamond and arrow motifs. Traditional colours of deep purple-red, deep blue, pink-orange and unusual gold-yellow tones are used to form the fine patterns of the rug.

    Turkmen Rugs are fine tribal pieces woven by nomadic and semi-nomadic Turkmen tribespeople. The Gül pattern is the iconic design feature of these rugs, grounded in deep and rich colours mixed with more contrasting tones. This is an interesting example of a Turkmen rug, as gold colours are not often seen in such pieces. The rug has been expertly crafted by skilled weavers from finely spun wool, making it sumptuously soft underfoot and hardwearing. The rug is in very good overall condition, with fringe securing work required on both fringe ends.

    This Antique Tekke Turkmen Rug is a fine piece, perfect for classic and modern decors. Whether a minimalist open plan living area or traditional bedroom or living room, this rug adds texture, character and warmth to any space.
