Oriental Rugs Dictionary


A Turkoman tribe of the Amu Darya region of central Turkestan. Older main carpets attributed to this tribe carry the Tauk Noska Gul. The dominant field color in their weaving is purplish-brown. Outlines are formed in natural brown wool. There is some warp offset and the knot is asymmetric and open to the left. Wefts are spun of wool and white cotton. However, the attribution of specific rugs to this tribe is questionable.
