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.

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 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 glorious contrast to the center.

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 beige. The border features beige, dark red and dark blue. The dark red center combines the colors old rose and dark blue.

Material

The technique used to produce the materials of the pile of this Kazak is over 200 years old. The wool is dyed with natural colors and spun by hand. Dyeing with natural or vegetable dyes is more complicated, expensive and time-consuming than dyeing with chemical dyes. For a bright red, for example, you would need about one kilogram of ground madder root per kilogram of wool as dye. For a strong, not too pale yellow, you would need two kilograms of the dye madder per kilogram of wool. Also spinning wool is time-consuming and labor-intensive. In addition, fewer and fewer people are able to hand spin wool.

But the effort is worth it: By dyeing with natural dyes, the high-quality wool retains its natural fat content. Wool dyed with natural colors and spun by hand creates fascinating, iridescent patterns. The charm of hand-spun wool with its slight irregularities and natural hues unfolds as a contrasting element in modern interiors, but also in rooms that are furnished in a more traditional or country house style. 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.

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.
