Turkoman were nomads or semi nomads and therefore there are no surviving records of the Turkomans's tribal history. They spread far a field and now various large tribal groups of Turkomans live in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Iran and Afghanistan.Small family groups can also be seen in Turkey.

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 both carpet and kilim is extensive and important and includes carpets, tent door carpets, prayer rugs, tent bags, transport bags and camel and horse decorations in both techniques Turkoman weavings were first shipped in the 1850's to the European markets from the town of Buhara and hence rather than indicating the tribal groups (Esari,Tekke,Salor,Yomut, to name just a few of the 45 groups and subgroups), many dealers sell Turkoman weavings as 'Buhara' carpets. Turkoman weavings at their best represent some of the finest and important weavings found on todays market
