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. Abstract geometric tribal patterns in primary colors are characteristic of these rugs. Typically, geometric and, more rarely, floral motifs are portrayed 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 Kazak rug is hand knotted in Pakistan from hand-spun wool dyed with natural colors using a traditional technique.
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 blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..
The edge of the rug is decorated with an edging (border). The border forms a excellent contrast to the center.
The surface of this Kazak has a flecked effect. The color changes and light-dark shades of the pile yarn run across the length of the rug, making the colors shimmer and making the rug impervious to dirt. Because of these so-called color jumps Abrash the rug appears more lively. The flecking is the result of the wool of this Kazak being hand-spun. During dyeing, the natural dyes are absorbed differently.
In the middle of the central field of this Kazak is the symmetrical center, also called medallion. The design of the field is arranged in such a way that it gives the impression that the medallion is floating on the field.
The background of this Kazak is rusty red. The border features dark green, beige and dark blue. The beige center combines the colors dark red and old rose.
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 weft and warp threads of this Kazak are made of cotton. This versatile material is tear-resistant and stretchable and, therefore, ideal for a durable backing fabric.
