Early Turkmen BookRug Bookmark

Regular price $9.95

This bookmark is made from a unique process using vibrantly coloured nylon fibers (not printed with ink) that will not fade with normal use. They are similar to high pile carpet on a miniature scale. This process creates dimensional graphics that reproduces fine design details with a soft all-flock texture that is pleasing to the touch.

This carpet combining design is derived from certain Persian rugs, a Turkmen colour sensibility, and atypical yarn usage is one of these idiosyncratic examples. The many questions still surrounding Turkmen weavings only add to their mystery and fascination. The skill and artistry of Turkmen weavers is evident in this 18th century example.
