Description

The 'germech' was designed to be placed under the yurt door-rug (engsi) in order to keep out vermin and any other unwanted small visitors! This beautiful germech, made by Ersary Turkmen around 1870-1880, has lovely shades of madder-red, indigo-blue, turquoise and highlights of golden-yellow. The germech, which is a relatively rare item, is in mint condition, over-bound on the sides and top with goat-hair and retains its complete plain-weave elem.
Size: 28cm x 1.08m (1' 0" x 3' 6").
