The side cords were re-wrapped in the past. Note that he top end is original and complete (see photo 12). The bottom ending is slightly reduced by a couple rows of knots and is now sewn back secure to prevent future loss of structure.
There are old repairs in the field to areas of past ethnographic age use (see photos 10 & 11). Typical for these types, the pink color was derived from a synthetic dye source. Professionally cleaned to museum standards. A very dramatic Turkmen textile relic for the collector to immediately use as a decorative wall hanging in the home or office.
