moreWoven in the region of Caucasus, this 1890s or early 1900s vegetable dyed wool Kazak embodies the geometric and bold design and color that are traditional features of these rugs. These rugs are very powerful in design and durability. Some of the earliest Kazaks woven date back as far as 1700 BC and are the most widely collected and prized of the Caucasian rugs. They were not just used for the floors by the nomads who weaved them, but many were placed on walls because owning a Kazak was a status symbol.
Hand knotted with high quality wool, this soft and floppy runner features an all over pattern and is nicely timeworn. This is a stout Kazak, ready for another century of use, and is in good condition, with a small professionally repaired tear (sewn a few inches due to an old tear). Colors include indigo blue, madder red, ivory, yellow, beige, and brown. The outermost border is what we believe to be "fence of security", although different than what we've seen before in pattern. This element is symbolic of what these nomads who wove this rug wanted to protect in their lives and what was most important to them.
Size: 3'4" x 7 Hand knotted in the 1890s or early 1900s with vegetable dyed wool. Nicely timeworn, with a few inches of minor sewn repair near the top of the runner (see pic). less
