Impressive Antique Caucasian Kazak Sewan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Caucasian Rugs, Circa date: 1900 – The tribal antique Caucasian Kazak rugs have a unique, primitive charm that has attracted rug collectors and interior designers for centuries. This gorgeous piece is a unique type of Kazak rug known as a “keyhole” Sewan. These antique rugs are from the southern region of the Caucasus Mountains. This piece was created during the turn of the 20th century and represents a unique piece of tribal art.

Sewan rugs were created by a traditional culture that has occupied small alpine villages and encampments high in the mountains. These antique Caucasian rugs were almost unknown until the expansion of trade routes into these remote areas in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was then that the world got its first view of these wonderful creations, and they fell in love with them.

Rugs from the Kazak region combine bold geometric patterns and gorgeous color combinations, as you can see from this piece. This one shows the influence of village design and has a folk art quality that you cannot find in mass-produced commercial rugs. This gives it a special human connection to the weaver working in primitive conditions using primitive techniques that have been a part of her culture for thousands of years.

The designs of Sewan Kazaks often take up a large portion of the field. They are often tied to traditions, myths, and have cosmological meanings attached to them. They often express the relationship between the majestic mountains and sky. You can see representations of the various plants and animals that were a part of their world and daily life.

The motifs and designs found in these rugs are passed from generation to generation through oral traditions that include songs, poetry, and stories. Each generation learns to create them by working beside more experienced weavers in the family. Sometimes, you will see evidence of less-skilled hands practicing to learn their craft. Then, it will appear as if more skilled hands took over again in a beautiful dance where the designs are passed from one generation to the next.

This is a gorgeous antique Caucasian Sewan Kazak rug with bold colors and a striking design. It has a primitive feel that will be perfect for any tribal-inspired decor, or perhaps a Boho Chic style room. You could easily see it in a room with natural elements, such as basketry and plenty of plant material. It will be a beautiful addition to any area of your home or office space.
