On sale! Woven in the region of Caucasus, this 1880s 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 were placed on walls because owning a Kazak was a status symbol. Kazaks were also placed on a King’s thrown or at his feet. 

Hand knotted with high quality wool and coarse knots, this rug features 5 large medallions in the field and has a 3 lane border with geometric pattern throughout. In the design, these nomads wove in stars of wisdom. They believed wisdom is wealth. This is a stout Kazak, ready for another century of use, is in good condition with some minor wear, small holes scattered about (see pics). 

The rich colors include deep red and blue and you will see some yellow sprinkled, surrounding the medallions in the field and in the borders. Other colors included forest green, ivory, brown and a lighter shade of blue.
