This is an old and soft hand knotted rug from the Caucasus mountains. It is tribal from a nomadic tribe that lived in the region North of Persia. Kazak rugs are popular amongst collectors around the world.
This little scatter rug is from the 1880-1900 and it has the weavers creativity and expression all over it. This piece was woven by a woman without a particular and exact set design or pattern in mind.
There are several motifs on this wool rug and they are not woven in any particular order, and this rug is quite unique and filled with symbolism, which includes what we see as tribal ram horns in the border, which represents masculinity/fertility...and women wove these elements wished for their future husband, so they say!
This rug is low pile wool and love worn, and it sits on a wool foundation. It has all natural dyes. Another beautiful moment of this rug is where abrash sweeps across the end...you'll see changes in the colors of the dyes which indicates she changed her batches of naturally dyed wool to finish her rug.
A custom cut rug pad will ship on the house to keep this old baby nice and snug.
