4′-4″x6′-4″(130cm x 190cm), Handwoven Wool on Wool, Excellent Condition DSC03550

This Ersari Turkmen yamut carpet was made to emulate the transcendent Ersari rugs of the 18th and 19th centuries. The dyes sources include madder root for red,indigo for blue, and insparak flower or pomegranate husks for yellow. Manipulation and combination of these dye sources allows for a wide palette of colors. Wool is as important as dyes to the creation of a great rug. Only hand carded, hand spun wool is used. All of the carpets are washed in soap and water only. While they may shine less initially, the long-term benefits are great. This is the way in which these carpets were traditionally finished. The wonderful sheen they develop only increases after years of use and washing. This unique weaving technique has been among these tribes for centuries. 

West Turkestan is an area of some 700,000 square kilometers with the Caspian Sea to the west, the Mangyshlak Peninsula to the northeast and the Kapet-Dagh Mountains and the outskirts of the Hindukush forming a semicircle to the south. West of what since 1924 has been the border of the Soviet Socialist Republic of Turkmenistan are Afghanistan and the Iranian province of Khorassan. At the eastern side is the huge Chinese province of Xinjiang (Sinkiang). Usually referred to in the context of weaving literature as East Turkestan. Thus viewed in simple geographic terms, it is easier to understand the nature of this Eurasian basin, part of the ancient world’s dry belt.
To the western side of the region is the Karakum desert and to the east, between the Amu-Darya and Syr-Darya rivers, is the Kyzylkum desert. To the south, that there was earlier the Soviet Socialist Republic of Uzbekistan, now this independent state, are the important trading centers of Bukhara and Samarkand. The latter having been a major post along the ancient Silk Road, which ran from China through East Turkestan and on westwards, via Tashkent in Uzbekistan, Mary (Merv) in Turkmenistan and Khorasan. Many different ethnic groups have occupied this region for millennia and among those associated with weaving, in addition to the Turkoman’s themselves, are the Uzbeks, Karakalpaks and Kirgiz.
