Description
Early Yomut Main Carpet
292 x 176 cm (9' 7" x 5' 9")
Turkmenistan, late 18th century
Condition: good according to age, rare variety of colors and knotting structures, low pile, foundation partially visible, scattered small repairs, signs of use at sides and ends
Published: „Turkmenische Teppiche", Werner Loges, 1978, plate 34
Warp: wool, weft: wool, pile: wool

When this carpet was published by Werner Loges in 1978, he suggested that it could be 18th century. At that time, dating any Turkmen carpets to the 18th century was considered fanciful. However, the work undertaken by the late Swiss scholar Jürg Rageth showed very clearly that, not only does the cultural tradition of weaving within these Turkmen tribes extend back into the medieval period but, also, extant examples can be dated back to the 15th century, thanks to carbon-dating and in-depth design analysis.
The field design indicates that this is an early version of the kepse gül carpet type, since the güls are still arranged in rows of two followed by one complete gül rather than the purely diagonal arrangement of the kepse güls associated with late 19th century examples. They still appear in four different colourways—in later examples this can be reduced to only two colours of gül. In addition, the kepse güls have nine coloured ribs on each long side rather than the more typical seven. The octagon at the centre of the gül is still clearly articulated and can be related to the transitional form of the gül found in 17th- and 18th-century multi-gül variants of this design type. The elems are particularly striking, containing a variant of the tree design associated with asmalyks and ensis throughout the 19th century.
