Ersari (Turkmen: Ärsary, where Er – brave man, master; sari – light, bright, yellow) are one of the major tribes of the Turkmen people of Central Asia and one of the five major tribes of the country of Turkmenistan.They live mainly in Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan.. Regarding their rugs and contrary to the custom of the other Turkmen, the Ersaris have no proper gul, or specific tribal motif.

Ersari carpets make more use of yellow than do rugs made by other tribes, and often, in backgrounds, two shades of blue blend or are merged with dark brown in a characteristic fashion.
