Wonderful old antique Turkmen Ersari Torba
The Antique Turkmen Ersari Torba is a remarkable piece of textile artistry. Originating from the Ersari tribes in the Middle Amu Darya region of Turkmenistan, this exquisite torba dates back to the late 19th century (circa 1870-1880). The Ersari people are known for their intricate weaving techniques and distinctive designs. The torba showcases a dominant motif known as the ‘Salor’ gul, featuring a large, stylized medallion surrounded by intricate geometric patterns. Its rich, deep red hue, achieved using natural dyes, evokes warmth and vibrancy. Despite its age, this Antique Turkmen Ersari Torba remains in excellent condition, with an intact pile and colors that have retained their brilliance. Meticulously hand-washed and ready for display, it’s not just a textile artifact; it’s a testament to the Ersari weavers’ skill, cultural heritage, and artistic sensibility. Its stunning drawing and vivid colors make it a cherished piece for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
