Auction Item Description
--------------------------------------------------------------

This is a very nice Handmade Cuff BRACELETs in the TURKOMAN / Turkman style of the Kuchi Tribe of Southeast Afghanistan and Northwest Pakistan (Pashtunistan). This is great for BELLY DANCE, Tribal Dance, or wearing to that special Tribal Party or event!. . . .We also have these as PAIRS, please see our other auctions.

Earlier this year we were lucky enough to get a few antique Bracelets, and have asked our office in Peshawar to continue to keep their eye out for more, as we would take them even one at a time...as many as they can find. The antique bracelets, in addition to being quite rare, are often rather "used", so before we sold the antique ones, we gave them to a Turkman Artisan Metalworker near our office in Peshawar, and asked him to duplicate the design... I am now very happy to have received several pairs of these excellent Artist Reproductions, and am able to offer them at less than 1/6 the cost of the antiques, making them more accessible to a greater number of dancer's budgets...They are very well detailed, just like the originals....I am sure you will love them!...I have listed the measurements on the bottom pic.

While the majority of Turkoman population is in Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and even as far West as northern Iraq, there are a half million Turkoman residing within Afghanistan today. The Turkoman of Afghanistan are primarily of the Ersari and Tekke tribes, and are nomadic with the Kuchi. Interaction between tribes, both in rural areas and within refugee camps, led to the sharing of some traditions, and jewelry styles.

Tribal structure always has been complex, and in the Turkmen-language terminology the largest groupings, what Western scholarship calls tribes, are called khalk, il, or taipa. In the past, Turkmen tribes remained relatively isolated and politically independent from one another. All tribes possessed specific distinguishing features. Their dialects differed greatly, and in terms of material culture each large tribe had a unique carpet pattern, clothing, headgear, and brand of identification. The extended family is the basic and most important social and economic unit among the Turkmen. Grouped according to clan, small bands of Turkmen families live as nomads in their traditional regions and consolidated only in time of war or celebration. In most cases, the families were entirely self-sufficient, subsisting on their livestock and at times on modest agricultural production. Families continue to be closeknit and often raise more than five children. In both rural and urban areas, respect for elders is great.

The importance of the role of marriage in the tribal system is due to the need for manpower. Women play an important role in the tribal system, because they, like men, are productive, and they make felt, spin wool, weave carpets and cloths, milk cows and sheep, prepare dairy products for the family, build cottages and help with men in cultivation, maintenance and harvesting of agricultural products. Most important, they give birth to children. Hence raising a family gives the new marriage added power and respect, which is why elaborate and glorious ceremonies and rites are observed in the case of courting and wedding.

Turkoman society is different that other Muslim societies. Although a division of labor has existed and women usually were not visible actors in political affairs, Turkmen women never wore the veil or practiced strict seclusion. They generally possessed a host of highly specialized skills and crafts, especially those connected with the household and its maintenance. This caused particular difficulty in Aghanistan under Taliban rule, and so many Turkmen left to become refugees in Pakistan.

--------------------------------------------------------------
International Shipments
--------------------------------------------------------------
International shipments are actual cost only, no markup, no handling charges!...Unfortunately, with the May07 USA Postal service rate changes, they eliminated the smaller $5 fixed rate pack....sorry!...so, now the least expensive way is the larger $18 fixed rate pack ($14 to Canada)…[[[PLEASE READ NOTE AT THE BOTTOM OF ALL THE PICS]]]....the good news is that we can fit more in it...a bra and some coins or other small pendants, or up to 300 coins, or some coins and some other things....we will always try to combine items to get the best rate on shipping for you. ::smile::

Some countries are quite fast in processing incoming packages from the USA....for example, the UK, Australia, and Germany are very quick through customsSome countries are much slower...Canada, for example....My experience is that even though we are only a couple of hours drive from the border , it may take several days longer to get even to downtown Montreal than it would be for a package to be delivered to a small hamlet somewhere in the highlands of Scotland....

And then there is Italy.....ahhhhh....I love Italy....the people, the food, the wine...what a wonderful place Italy is....please expect that shipments to Italy will be delayed by slow customs processing, slow mail delivery, train service delays due to daily labor strikes, etc., etc., etc,....

I am terribly sorry, but due to the delays, incompetence, and lack of urgency of the Customs and Postal systems I must now require that all shipments to ITALY, RUSSIA, GREECE, and ARGENTINA be through the more expensive Express Mail with Tracking. The Flat Rate Express Mail envelope is $39, and will provide us with a detailed tracking showing exactly where your package is delayed.
