A Persian Carpet, Turkoman, 145024 212 x 284

Turkoman weavers have made patterns as the rug here for centuries. They are most popular for their ease of use within a home setting. Their repetitive geometric designs make them workable in modern and traditional spaces.

The example here is a beautiful one which looks even more attractive due to its age. Decades of life have deepened the colours. Pattern imperfections are characteristics of an era in which such rugs were far from commercial and often woven for the weavers' use. Both effects add personality and character to this amazing rug and make it a conversational piece that one could happily enjoy for years.

Wool on a cotton base.
