Yomut weavings are by far the most diverse Turkmen group incorporating several types of weaves and a variety of color palettes. This Yomut ‘chuval’ tent bag face spaciously draws a field of classic chuval guls with striped ‘chemcheh’ minors. The use of asymmetrical knots open to the right allowed the weaver increased precision to draw a spectacularly crisp and open composition. This fineness of weave is matched by a subtle but vibrant saturation of color giving a fabulous sense of depth.
