Where is TURKMENISTAN ?

Northern IRAN- TURKMENISTAN-Torkaman Sharah

The majority of the TURKMEN tribe of IRAN lives in the north and northeast sections of IRAN.

Marco Polo said in the 13th century, "Here they make the most exquisite and beautiful rugs in the world." The TURKMEN tribe has hand loomed rugs for many centuries.

Rug weaving is one of the oldest arts in TURKMENISTAN and the surrounding region.

Archeological data places carpet making in the territory of TURKMENISTAN as early as the 6th century BCE.

The remains of a carpet found by archeologists in the 1940's at Altai is two-thousand five hundred years old. It took centuries for these designs to develop, and the decoration of the carpets is extremely original, reflecting stylized articles from the world of nomadic livestock-breeders.

Ornaments are geometric, and a love of deep, rich red is an artistic tradition of the carpets.

The art of carpet weaving passed from generation to generation, and today one can single out several types of Turkmen carpets, each having distinctive ornamentation.

TURKMEN are not only famous for their beautiful rugs, but also for their famous Akhal-teke horses.

These horses originate from the Turkmen SAHARA (Desert) in northeastern IRAN and have been used as cavalry mounts and racehorses for thousands of years.
