Beshir rugs are Turkmen rugs. They come from Central Asia, İran and Turkey. The distinguishing design of these antique rugs is the red or reddish field with highly stylized floral designs in the center. The interesting feature about these rugs is their proportion: long and narrow, in comparison to other styles. This is because they were used for seating in tents, and tend to be long to accommodate a whole family. This rug is approximately 170 years old.
