This fine Turkmen tent bag displays the precision for which Tekke weaving is renowned. Against a vibrant madder red ground twenty-four chuval guls with cruciform centers alternate with ‘columns of linked chemcheh’ minors. A forest of flowering tress is drawn in the bottom ‘elem’ panel. This is a stellar example of Tekke Turkmen weaving.
