Woven in the region of Caucasus mountains, this 130+ year old vegetable dyed wool Kazak embodies the geometric and bold design and color that are traditional features of these rugs. Perhaps that is why they are some of the most widely collected and prized of the Caucasian rugs. Some of the earliest Kazaks woven date back as far as 1700 BC.
These rugs are very powerful in design and durability. Hand knotted with very soft wool and coarse knots, this rug features 3 large medallions in the field with smaller scorpion medallions surrounding, and wine cups and serrated leaves in the main border. If you see closely, you will 2 comb elements in the guard borders. These are old world elements and quite symbolic about the weavers, their beliefs and culture.
This Kazak has time worn character and is in great shape considering age, history and use. This wool rug sits on a soft wool foundation. We recommend a rug pad with this beauty.
