Overview

Here is an impressive Kazakh rug hand-knotted in Afghanistan. Kazakh carpets are the most widely known and most popular of Caucasian rugs. This particular one features four borders and its vertical lines represent jewellery, specifically sets of bracelets composed of hyacinth flowers. The bracellet patterns are rare to find in carpets of this style rendering it truly one of a kind. The hyacinth flowers are a symbolism of regeneration in tribal cultures of Caucasia. This area rug is also characterized by a long pile and six weft threads between its rows of knots. The high quality wool in this carpet provides both durabilty and a soft velvety touch. Its colors are bright and lively adding a touch of warmth to any environment.

A Brief History of Kazakh Rugs

Kazakh Carpet Weaving In origin, Kazakh is a tribal name, now a town, river and district in the extreme west of Azerbaijan, the Caucuses. Kazakhs; also known as Qazax, Kazak, Kasak or Gazakh; are noted for their coarse, long-pile carpets with shiny wool, dramatic colors and vigorous designs. Their knots are usually Turkish (Ghiordes knots) and are generally made by weavers who were Turkic nomads, now settled, who came to the region at the time of the great westward migration of Turks in the eleventh century. These carpets were usually made by the women in the families.

Kazakh carpets made at the beginning of the 20th century have colors that are synthetic and designs that are less varied and more simplified as compared to the ones made today. Carpets of this period however still offer good resistance although they are less appealing from an artistic point of view. Today there is a large production of new Kazakh carpets in Pakistan which are inspired by Caucasian designs and are made up of lively colors that are from natural vegetable dyes. These carpets are long lasting and have a short pile. Kazakh carpets blend equally well in classic environments as they do in contemporary settings.
