By Elena Tsareva
This publication introduces British collector Neville Kingston’s extraordinarily rich yet previously unknown collection of Turkmen tribal rugs and trappings. The exceptional private collection forms the departure point for an exciting account of the development of the Turkmen weaving tradition, which lies at the heart of Eurasian textiles. Renowned expert Elena Tsareva employs historical and archaeological data to shed light on motifs, compositions and techniques in this beautifully illustrated volume.
