The most inspiring evidence of the fact that our rugs are a historical legacy is the "Pazyryk rug" found in the Altay mountains and carbon-dated to have been produced as early as in 4 B. Pazaryk has major similarities to Turkomen carpets.
Traditions of carpet-weaving have ancient history on this blessed land. An Italian traveler Marco Polo was the first to mention the Turkomen carpets in XIII century. In the 12th chapter of his well-renowned manuscripts he writes: The finest and the most beautiful carpets are made here and rich fabric of red and other colors are woven here. Even if by the time of Marco Polo the Turkomen carpets had reached such fineness and beauty, it is not difficult to suppose that the roots go far back to the earlier period because a carpet is mainly a result of creative work of many generations of nameless weavers.
In European Renaissance paintings one will be amazed at a number of Turkomen carpets. In "St John Altarpiece" by Hans Memling, we can view the archaic Turkomen Salyr (Chuval) Gol thought perhaps produced by the Turkomen weavers in Anatolia (Turkey). In "Still Life" by the same artist, one the most archaic Turkomen gols is depicted. Although the art is ancient, it became truly popular only in the second half of the 19th century.
Rugs were produced for nomadic and semi-nomadic Turkomen population. Needless to say, the Turkomen people had no contacts with Europeans. When the first carpet exhibitions were held in Vienna and Berlin, the spectators were stunned by the original beauty of the masterpieces of yet unseen Oriental art. Generic Turkomen patterns are predominantly geometric in design.
Quite many variations of the red color are characteristic of the Turkomen weaving. Feel free to message us with further questions. We are happy to help! We are a proudly established 5th generation family business.
