The Kazak design is mainly made by the Hazara Tribes of Afghanistan. The design and patterns of Kazak rugs are taken from old Caucasian rugs (Caucasian carpets are from the areas south, east and north of the mountain chain of the Caucasus, Russia)
The wool yarns used are all hand spun and dyed using only natural dyes such as cochineal and indigo, which adds to their dramatic and vibrant appearance. Once dyed and hand knotted on a cotton warp base in Afghanistan the rugs are then transported over to Pakistan where they are expertly finished including washing and trimming.
The method used to hand make a Kazak rug is called ‘’ChappatBaft’’ or Flat woven.
Kazak rug weavers are faithful in using traditional bold colour and design mainly including both small and large geometrical motifs. The designs are predominantly bold and typically include a mixture of diamond and circle shapes as well as representations of animals, people and nature. The medallion layout is also popular using various scales.
In 1sqm of Supreme Kazak rugs there would be around 160000 + knots giving a fine-density pile.
Care Instructions: Specialist cleaning recommended.
Use suction vacuum only, avoid rotating brushes which could damage your rug. We recommend using rug hold underlay to help protect your rug from moving and colour transfer.
