Ensi is the name given to this partcular design which was woven and hung in the tent doors.
These carpets are known for their fine knotting and beautiful archaic colours
History : The history, genealogy, beliefs and way of life of the Turkoman steppe peoples are all of great importance to their woven art.Turkoman weavings, with their distinctive red-brown palette, repeating rows of geometric 'gul'ornamentation, extremely fine major and minor borders, high knot count and strong glossy wool represent a highly complex and historically continuous culture.The study of Turkoman weavings is extensive and important especially as the various different tribes reside within a large area including Iran Turkmeni,stan, Uzbekistan and Afghanistan.
