We should not be surprised that the regularity and formal organization of the classic Turkoman carpet usually attracts enthusiasts of a tidy and methodical frame of mind.

A carpet is a textile floor covering typically consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing.

The pile was traditionally made from wool, but, since the 20th century, synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester are often used, as these fibers are less expensive than wool.
