Turkoman khorjin that could reasonably be attributed to the first half of the 19th century are also very rare, perhaps nonexistent. Indeed, there are very few specimens with palettes that are free of obviously synthetic dyes. For this reason, it is generally believed that, like prayer rugs, khorjins were late additions to the Turkoman repertoire of weavings. But unlike prayer rugs, khorjin usually are subjected to hard use and exposure to the elements. Thus, even if there were saddlebags among the earliest Turkoman weavings, older examples would be expected to be rare. Most would simply have disintegrated.
