About: A GORGEOUS antique Kazak from a region where rug weaving has been so significant to the people, land, and culture. Arguably the greatest rug weaving territory, the Caucasus are known for weaving highly artistic and very desirable pieces with their piercing blues, rich reds, calming camel and taupes, and soft beige, amongst other colors. The strong designs are all very territorial and due to lots of turmoil in their area - some designs become hybrids with other tribal designs to evolve into new patterns and "remix" or patterns and motifs if you will. This piece is a powerful tribal antique Kazak woven in the Southern region or the "low-land" Caucasians. Organic wool foundation with wool pile speaking to it's nomadic nature, this piece lots of symbolism and alchemy at play which is one of the things we are always searching for. In this piece, you will see "running water", mountain motifs, ram horns, and more. These navy blues paired with lighter French and Lake blues add a nice complexity of cool tones, then warmed with the rich red and softened up with the un-dyed beige sheep wool. Lots of nice earthy colors as well add some depth to round this out and make it a fantastic medium-sized antique rug with endlessly powerful design and colors. A true character piece!

This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available.

Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.

A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
