During our latest inventory count, we were so captivated once again by very many outstanding rugs that we have decided to share some of the exceptional ones with you each month as “The Rug of the Month.”
Here is this month’s pick:
TURKMEN YOMUD RUG
4’ 6” X 6’ 3”
The diagonal rows of an octagonal single diamond-shaped motif in red, ivory, blue, and turquoise is repeated on the black-brown main field. A single stripe replicating the primary border in designs and colors divides the main field into two. The red primary border is decorated with repeated polygonal rosettes alternating in ivory and blue. The secondary inner and outer borders are decorated with the same reciprocating dog-teeth design in alternating ivory, red, and blue.
The two ends of the rug are decorated with repeated tree motifs with serrated leaves. The surprisingly random use of yellow leaves on one end; and, the repeated wine-glass single row bordering the “X” shapes on the other end further enhance the charm of this tribal yet elegant rug.
