Bashir or Beshir rugs are crafted by weavers from the Beshir tribe of Turkmen origins. They were among the first settlers of the region in Turkmenistan along the Amu Darya or Amu River. When conflict began with the Balkans in the 17th century, the tribe began migrating to Afghanistan. What made the rugs created in Bashir style was the distinctive mix of floral patterns as opposed to the more traditional geometric details Turkmen rugs are known for.
