Turkmen rugs include Basjir, Salor, Tekke-Bochara, Jolam-Bocharaband, Ersari, Tjaudor and Yomut which are examples of the rug style called Bokhara. The deep red and the whole range of red from purple to brown are the dominant colours with repeating octagons, rhombi, yomut motifs being characteristic of these rugs. The warp of the rugs is always wool.

Turkaman Rugs : The Turkaman rugs are being woven in several regions of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, eastern Turkestan, Afghanistan and Belutschistan. Basjir, Salor, Τekke-Bochara, Jolam-Bocharaband, Ersar, Tjaudor and Yomut rugs, which are characteristicexamples of the Bokhara techniques, belong to the category of the Turkaman rugs. Deep red and different tones of red, even purple or brown are their principal colours. Their main rugs designs include repeated octagonal, rhombi, the motifs gul and yomut. Their warp is woolen.

Nomadic rugs with designs influenced by urban rugs: They are rugs woven by nomads who for the past few years had been living in villages. The rugs are woven in the nomadic style of weaving, but their designs are nowadays influenced by urban rugs. Due to the nomadic style of weaving rugs are sometimes uneven in shape.

Abrash: Due to the different amount of grease in the wool and the added salt during the process of dyeing, the wool has got a varying colour absorbance. This is not very visible before weaving. During the weaving though, lines of the same colour are formed in the rug. This is called Abrash (which in Farsi means little cloud) and it shows that the wool was not manufactured using chemical means and marks the naturalness and authenticity of the rugs. Examples
