Commanding attention with its saturated dyes and large scale tribal motifs, this amazing Caucasian (Russian origin) is a Soumak. The flat weave is accomplished by looping the yarn horizontally around successive pairs of warps in between passes of over-under wefting. The lovely rug lends itself well to the detailed weft-wrapped weaving technique known as Soumak.
The field has a powerful design with a middle medallion burst of a bold and contrasting electric color. The main border features serrated leaves and wine cup motifs while the edge guard border has a running water design. This piece has a floppy handle and was woven in the mid 20th Century.
It not only can make a floor covering, but it can be used as a large wall hanging or an amazing bed spread. With a wool weft and warp and gorgeous fringes, it shows off the raw and natural beauty of old rugs.
