Rug: Handmade Tribal Antique Persian Yomut; Material: Fine quality baby lamb's wool pile, all natural vegetable dye; Size: 11.5x8.2 feet; Foundation: Cotton; Design: Persian Yomut; Origin: Iran; The approximate year of origin: 1955-1965; Description: the Yomut is one of the main Turkman tribes. Frequently the dyrnak gul, kepse, and the tauk muska guls are used on antique Yomut rugs. The colors, primarily burnt sienna with ivory borders, are used to create diagonal or vertical arrangements. These antique tribal Oriental rugs are more colorful than other Turkman rugs. Repetitive floral motifs, tree motifs and the less frequent bird motifs adorn the centerfield. Yomut rugs are among the most popular varieties of Turkman carpets available. Antique rug collectors value these rugs because they are one of the most well-known types, named after one of the main Turkman groups. Like many beautiful tribal Turkman rugs, classical motifs are applied throughout, often resulting in a beautifully geometric arrangement that is meant to captivate the viewer's attention and create veritable network of lines for them to follow.
