Treasured for their amazing construction technique, this flat weave rug is ever strong and a spectacular piece of art. This is a large and amazing Caucasian (Russian origin) Soumak rug from the early 1920s.
This wool on wool rug was woven in the mountains and it features medallions and intricate motifs throughout. The flat weave is accomplished by looping the yarn horizontally around successive pairs of warps in between passes of over-under wefting. This technique lends itself to the detailed weft-wrapped weaving technique known as Soumak.
The color ways are rich, bold and features grand medallions. It not only can make a floor covering, but it can be used as a large wall hanging or an amazing bed spread!
Woven with all natural dyes and highly decorative and meaningful with immense history, art and culture that would be a statement piece in the home.
