Default Need help identifying this wall hanging (?)

Hi all,

I initially thought this was a Turkoman weaving, but now I am not so sure. Would anybody here mind giving me their estimation on what this could be?

It's flat-woven, not knotted.

It's missing the tassel on the left side, and some of the fringes at the bottom, but other than that, it's pretty intact. I am going to hang it above one of my interior doors.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Eric,

I believe that flat woven pieces of this sort are generally attributed to the Yomut Turkmen.

Many are attributed to Ersari as well. But either way, it's clearly Turkmen.
