Tekke oriental rugs are a type of handmade rug that originated from the Tekke tribe of Turkmenistan, a Central Asian country. These rugs are known for their intricate designs, high-quality wool, and vibrant colors.The Tekke tribe is known for their traditional weaving techniques, which involve using a horizontal loom and weaving from the bottom up. This method creates a tightly-knit rug with a dense pile, which makes it durable and long-lasting.The designs on Tekke rugs typically feature geometric shapes, including diamonds, hexagons, and octagons, as well as stylized floral and animal motifs. These motifs are often arranged in a repeating pattern, which creates a sense of rhythm and harmony in the rug's design.One of the most distinctive features of Tekke rugs is their use of color. Tekke weavers often use a rich red color, which is derived from the cochineal insect, as the primary color in their rugs. This red is often offset by accents of ivory, blue, green, and yellow, which help to create a dynamic and visually striking rug.Today, Tekke rugs are highly prized by collectors and interior designers for their beauty, durability, and cultural significance. They are considered one of the finest examples of Central Asian rug-making and continue to be produced by skilled weavers in Turkmenistan and other parts of the world.
