About the rugs that inspired the socks:
The Yomut are a Turkmen tribe now found mostly along the eastern shore of the Caspian Sea in Turkmenistan and Iran. Little is known of their history.
Yomut rugs show more variation than other kinds of Turkmen rugs though the differences still appear slight to those not well versed in the rugs of the region. They are always predominantly red and often feature diagonal stripes of large, lozenge-shaped, geometric forms called guls. These socks echo the strong diagonals and vibrant color of the Yomut rugs.
