If possible, I'd like to get my own designs incorporated in to a Turkmen carpet while I am visiting Ashgabat this summer.
I'm not sure if it is a service directly offered or not - and if not, if it is the done thing asking for something like this in Turkmenistan. (?)
The idea came after seeing examples with war themes made for US troops in Afghanistan:
I'm not interested in the war theme myself, but instead images and themes pertaining to the work we'll be doing while we are in the country. I figure it would be unique memento of the 4 months we will be there, notwithstanding being a fine rug in terms of quality.
What/where would be the best way to enquire about this?
I only speak english and will be working around 70hr weeks, with likely only Sundays off...
