A Caucasian Soumak with large repeating medallions of traditional Soumak design. It has an outstanding palette of earthy pinks and jewel tones.
Soumak rugs are made using a flat weave technique (rather than a knotting technique) and come from the Caucases region. Most are Azeri in origin. Soumak rugs are known for their bright colours and geometric patterns. They are notable for their repeating centre medallions. The Soumak flat weave technique is similar to the technique that is used to make kilims. However, the Soumak technique produces rugs that are significantly stronger and more durable than kilims. Soumak rugs have unclipped yarns on the reverse side.
This rug is in excellent condition with even wear consistent with age.
