Oriental Rugs Glossary

<< Back to Glossary List


The Turkmens are a nomadic people, which since centuries live in the region between the Caspic Sea, Amu-Darja, the Aral-Sea, the North Afghan as well as the North Persian area. Their warrior like way of life - especially in the 19th century - gained them fear and respect amongst their neighbors, but they reached real appreciation through their outstanding carpet weaving arts. Today most Turkmens settled down and don't lead nomadic lives anymore, which did not reduce the quality and art of their rugs.
