This vintage Turkaman Persian rug is in beautiful shape for its age and has a great weave on a rare silk foundation. The last photo posted is of the back of the rug, if you can believe it. The clarity of the pattern should give you an idea of just how finely woven this rug is. The simple, yet elegant geometric pattern of this rug makes it a very versatile piece. It would fit in perfectly with both timeless traditional and sleek contemporary looks. The pile of the rug is even and low, not because it is worn, but because it was shorn a tad bit lower than usual after weaving. It gives the illusion that this rug is antique (it needs just a few decades to get there). This piece would be a showstopper in a formal dining room. You can see Persian rugs in dining rooms here.
Turkaman and Bokara Persian rugs are in almost every textile enthusiast’s collection. The pattern is simple, yet interesting, and it is an easy pattern to spot if you’re a novice rug collector. The Turkaman tribe reside close to the city of Bokara which is now situated in modern Turkmenistan. The tribespeople can also be found in Northeast Iran and parts of Western Afghanistan.
