Place of origin

The Kazak (also Kasak) rugs belong to the category of Caucasian rugs. Rugs have been made in the Caucasus since the end of the 18th century. The abstract geometric tribal patterns in primary colors are characteristic of these rugs. Typically, geometric and, more rarely, floral motifs are pictured in contrasting, intense colors. In the 19th century, a considerable portion of these rugs, which were mainly produced in villages, was exported to the West under Russian control. This old Kazak is more than 40 years old and a true collector's item.

Patterns

The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Kazak. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.

The embellished edging (border) forms a beautiful contrast to the center and creates a transition at the edge of the rug.

In the pattern of this Kazak, the diamonds stand out in particular. Diamonds are a rhombus standing on a point, the four equal sides of which may be jagged, stitched or hooked. The diamond is one of the oldest basic forms in oriental rugs. It has a symbolic meaning in the Islamic world: it symbolizes the immortality of the soul. It is therefore very often found as a filler motif.

The background of this Kazak is dark blue. The border features yellow beige, light blue and dark red.

Condition

You are not the first to appreciate this Kazak. It has had owners before you who have cherished and used it. It was hand knotted about 1920. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Kazak because we think it is as it is effect. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.

Material

The pile of this Kazak has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound. The backing (weft and warp threads) of this Kazak is made of virgin wool.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
Kinder gehören in die Schule und nicht an den Knüpf- oder Webstuhl. Für uns ist es daher eine Selbstverständlichkeit, nur Teppiche, die unter fairen Bedingungen und ohne Kinderarbeit hergestellt wurden, anzubieten. Wir legen besonderen Wert auf menschenwürdige Arbeitsbedingungen und tolerieren keine Kinderarbeit bei unseren Produzenten.
