This is a nice sized flat weave 1920s Soumak with such a beautiful presence and an amazing color palette that shows off abrash (variation of its natural dyes and dye lots used to weave). These beautiful tribal rugs are Caucasians (Russian origin) that are very loved and collected by many. They are distinct rugs from the Mt. Sabalon area, north of Persia. With rich, natural vegetable dyes, this is a strong and durable flat weave; the detailed weft-wrapped weaving technique is known as “Soumak”.
From the mountainside, this piece in nice condition for its age & features large diamond medallions and intricate motifs throughout. The borders have ram horns and the edge guard element is known as “running water”. All these elements are meaningful to the weavers and we get to cherish their story and culture of once upon a time.
This rug is a flat weave and will be shipped with a rug pad on the house. The underside of this rug was treated once upon a time to have a slightly bonded solution. You can see the look at texture of it in one of the pics. This is on the underside and will grab on to the rug pad to keep it firmly in place when styled.
