The size and scale of drawing seen on this Yomut chuval are both larger than generally encountered. Using an autumnal color palette more typically seen in Chodor or Arabachi Turkmen groups, the weave and drawing of this piece are classically Yomut. Quartered ‘chuval guls’ are paired with alternating rows of ‘chemcheh’ minors. The border is made up of repeat boxes containing flowering shrubs while stylized trees are drawn in the bottom ‘elem’ skirt. Both warp and weft are made from un-dyed brown wool in keeping with the general color and mood of the piece.
