The Ersari rugs are woven by the Ersari Turkmen of Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. These carpets are noted by lattices of diamonds, grids of rectangular panels, small motifs, Chinese cloud bands and palm trees. Unlike other carpets, the Ersari rug is more loosely woven in a course knot. Using natural dyes, the red is made with madder root. They also like to use earthy brown colors. The rugs develop greater sheen as they age.
