This late 19th century piece is an early example of the rugs from this tribe which were produced for sale rather than kept in the family. However, it still depicts the typical Tekke gul (meaning "flower") which was used to denote membership of that tribe. These rugs were often traded in the Bokhara bazaar, which is why they are sometimes erroneously labelled "Bokhara"
