The Turkoman are a tribe of people, once nomadic but now largely settled, who inhabit the area of the Trans Caspian steppes all the way across to the edge of the Afghan Pamir mountains. The weavings are amongst the finest and most collectable and are geometric in design, with a simple colour palette of reds, midnight blue and natural undyed cream. This rug is unusual in having a wool pile a silk warp and weft.

Please use your rug with a suitable underlay which will protect the back of the knots and allow dirt to fall through the rug. Vacuum sparingly, once a week is sufficient, and do so on a low power and without the rotating brush, as this strips the pile. Clean professionally at least once every five years. Turn your rug every year if possible to even out footfall patterns and sun fading. Never leave your rug undisturbed under furniture in the dark. Keep a moth trap in the room if possible.
