Turkman Needlework is an applied and ornamental artwork that the artists practice on silk or wool fabrics with natural silk threads, cotton, or synthetic threads such as acrylic.
The artist is inspired by nature, envisions a scene in his mind, and then performs it as a picture on the very fabrics; each of the pictures is both of symbolic and decorative natures.
