Torkaman carpets: These carpets are hand-knotted, mainly in Turkmenistan, but also in neighboring areas. They are made of high-quality wool, and there may be silk in the pile or pure cotton. The patterns are repetitive and geometric with wide borders on the shorter sides, but not on the long-sides. The red, as the basic color in Torkaman Carpets, is given in its whole scale from violet to brown and it is often combined with other natural colors. These carpets are excellent pieces of craftsmanship and can be used in homes with many different styles.
