Teke Turkmen Wedding Rug
The Turkmen wedding rug was generally a small, square, finely knotted rug which the bride made for the marriage ceremony on which she and the bride-groom would stand and take their marriage vows. These special rugs were highly-prized possessions, never intended for sale.
This is a beautiful Teke wedding rug from the nineteenth century, complete with knotted elems and finished ends in plain-weave with a narrow band of knotted-pile.
