Notes: Bukhara Tekke Rugs are the floor coverings woven by the Tekke Turkmen, who are the nomadic tribesman occupying Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Iran. Many of these tribes still migrated with their flocks until the Soviet era, though most of them were sedentary during the 20th century. Their rugs are the most easily identifiable among the Turkmen, as the quartered gul is the characteristic motif of their larger carpets and has become something of a trademark of the tribe and has frequently been copied in other rug-weaving areas. Tekke rugs almost always show various shades of red as a field color and are all wool except for patches of pink silk on some of the earlier pieces. The best of them are the most intricately woven of Turkmen rugs, with short pile and lustrous, soft wool.
