Kazak Traditional Area Rug
The antique Kazak rugs, with their beautiful vegetable dyes and tribal patterns, are among the most prized and exciting Caucasian rugs. Famed for their rich colors, assertive, geometric drawing, and bold, large scale designs, they are sought after by collectors for their rugged authenticity, but they also make excellent accent rugs in a contemporary decorative setting. While Kazak rugs may have allover patterns, they are best known for their monumental and graphic medallion compositions, especially the Sevan and Karachopf types. When they are preserved with their original knots and thick pile, the beauty of the color and the lustrous quality of the wool really allows the powerful design of these charming rugs to shine through.
