Turkoman khorjin that could reasonably be attributed to the first half of the 19th century are also very rare, perhaps nonexistent.
The very fact that every Turkoman tribe seems to have made them (the Salor being a possible exception, although the lack of Salor examples would be expected in any case), in itself, suggests that they were not a late addition to the repertoire.
For this reason, I believe that it is likely that khorjin were woven by the Turkomans even during the early period, and that the reason older pieces aren't found is that they disintegrated from being subjected to outdoor use regularly.

It is known that in the late 19th century Tekke carpets constituted the main mass of Turkoman rugs at the markets of Central Asia and Europe.
This was the territory where the Yomuds, another large Turkoman tribe, lived and this was what Dudin saw after he crossed the Caspian Sea: the land on which Turkomans lived for hundreds of years, which created the world of the Turkoman rug.
The chaos provoked by the migration of different tribes and clans to other territories and countries resulted in a situation where it was extremely difficult to identify the differences between the style of rugs produced by various clans and groups.
