Turkoman is a broad term that collectively refers to a variety of Turkic-speaking, nomadic people both in Turkey and in neighboring countries. Among the Turkoman tribes best known for the artistry of their weaving are the Salor, Tekke, Saryk, Yomud, Ersari, Chodor and Arabatchi. Rugs are a necessity of nomadic life, and are often among the most treasured possession. They represent a major part of every young women’s dowry as well, so are crafted with great love and care. White is the color for weddings, and is often seen intermingled with red or reddish brown to suggest fecundity in marriage. Turkoman design contains many surprises, such as two-headed animals, “S” borders and a variety of charming folk patterns.
