Tribal productions


Regarding antique and old carpets, knotted among towns or by the several tribal groups, nomads and not, living from Anatolia to China, the situation is even more confuse.

We know just a few samples and fragments of this amazing production based on patterns with great immediacy and 1700-early 1800's archaicness: these are witnesses of a tradition that maybe is impossible to rebuild in our days.

Characterized by a large knotting, silky hair, high shaving and vivid colours, these carpets are generally decorated with geometrical patterns like hooked octagons, lozenges, 8point stars, often inserted into rhomboidal meshes or overlapping medallions.

Court's styles contributions are very rare or totally missing, like the "prey" implant or the great variety of flower patterns.
