Antique Tentband Fragment
19th Century Turkmen Tekke Tentband Fragment
The incredibly fine knotting in this Turkmen tent-band fragment was probably made by Teke tribes during the 19th century. Once around 12 metres long, time and wear has taken its toll on this magnificent weaving and today, this is all that remains of part of the complete band.
Tent-bands were never made for sale but made purely for not only decorating the yurt but each panel was of symbolic importance, designating areas within the yurt where certain items were placed and rooms created.
