Flat Woven Beautiful Antique Tribal Soumak Caucasian Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Caucasian Rug, Circa Date: 1910 – The antique Caucasian Soumak rugs are some of the most beautiful rugs in the world. These iconic antique Caucasian rugs are truly artistic and tend to boast captivating tribal designs along with a beautiful array of colors.
From the outside of this vibrant Soumak rug, a series of borders surround the bold center field, featuring an encompassing row of waves, with a wider, multi-toned border of zig-zag motifs surrounded by intricate flowers. Small medallions with flower-like appearances almost kiss the edge of the focal field, running vertically from top to bottom of the rich background, having an exact mirror on both sides of the Caucasian rug. Larger images appear as the design moves toward the middle point, featuring stylized diamond shapes in shades of medium blue. A single row of impactful medallions makes the central focus of this flat woven kilim like rug, with intricate detailing and layers of imaging popping off a deep indigo backdrop.
Since they were woven by either nomadic or semi nomadic people, the vast majority of the tribal antique rugs from the Caucuses are small. But luckily, the Soumaks come in a wider range of area rug sizes. That is why these tribal rugs are also some of the best rugs for those who love the more nomadic approach to the design and want larger size area rugs.
For people who are shopping for area rugs for their home and want to buy some truly captivating rugs, the antique Caucasian Soumak rugs would make a phenomenal option. These truly unique and facinating village industry rugs tend too look great in such a wide range of interior designs and home decorating approaches. That is what makes these rugs so easy to place in room and position among already existing furniture layouts.
