Stoic and intricate lies the Engsi. The Engsi style has a long history, with roots in nomadic Turkmen shamanism and tent structures, which later morphed into involvement in Islamic marriage rituals. The repetitive Y pattern is called a candelabra or animal head and is meant to signify the horns of an animal. This beautiful tribal pattern sits slightly askew on the field in rust red and navy blue dyes as proof that it is handwoven.
