The historic Kazak Khanate was bounded by the rugged mountains and lush valleys of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia. This cultural melting pot was populated by Armenian dyers and weavers, Azeri Turks, groups from the Northern Caucasus and minorities from the surrounding areas.
The Kazak rugs of the Caucasus are distinctive and individual. Iconic design traditions featured in regional rugs include Memling guls, geometric people and animals, symbolic motifs, dramatic medallions, crenelated fence borders, angular cloud-bands and graphic latch hook. These spectacular Oriental rugs each incorporate a distinctive piece of Kazak culture. Antique Kazak rugs are filled with vivid colors and a rich assortment of deeply meaningful symbols that continue to delight collectors and traditional rug connoisseurs.
