Antique Tekke Turkoman


Antique Tekke Turkomen rug, N Afghanistan, 1900’s. Lovely small, almost square,  ‘secede‘ (prayer rug) Tekke, very finely woven with a velvet-like feel as it is common for Turkomen rugs of that era. Consisting of 3×6 göl’s (octagonal stylised flower blossom) motifs along with secondary göl’s in the field and a traditional Tekke band border at either end of the rug, this is an exquisite example of very fine nomadic weaving. 100% hand-spun wool yarn in pile and foundation, natural dyes. Some wear is present in the pile along with some repairs and minor losses to the borders but otherwise in good condition.
