Charming Geometric Antique Caucasian Kazak Tribal Runner Rug, Country of origin: Caucasian Rugs, Circa date: 1920’s – Kazak rugs are loved for their beautiful colors and simple, tribal designs. The bold geometric motifs are layered with smaller ones, which adds an element of complexity. This runner rug was created in the 1920s and has an aged look that will add vintage charm to your space.

Originally, Kazak rugs were reserved for the wealthy and ruling class. Now, they are an excellent choice for any modern design style. The original weavers of these masterpieces were Turkic nomads who lived in the southern reaches of the Caucasus Mountains. They began weaving rugs in the region around the 5th century and still use motifs that have been passed down through the ages using oral traditions.

The designs of these weavers have inspired artists and designers for centuries. Each of the symbols has a special meaning for those who know how to interpret them. They give you a glimpse into the traditional culture that each rug represents.

One of the characteristics of these rugs that allows them to remain a staple in our interiors is the careful attention that weavers have paid to keeping the traditional techniques. Weavers in the twentieth century used the same motifs and took great care to ensure the rugs had the characteristic aged look that people continue to love.

This is achieved through a process of spinning the wool tightly and then stone-washing the rug as a final step.
The traditional weaving process gives Kazak rugs a soft texture that is luxurious underfoot. Weaving a Kazak rug is a commitment. A rug of this size could take five weavers as many as 9 or 10 months to complete working five or six hours per day. Each rug has an artistic quality and a connection to the people that you cannot get in a manufactured rug.

This runner rug fits nicely into a hallway to make a statement in an entranceway. You could also use it in high-traffic areas or smaller spaces. This is a gorgeous piece that gives your home or office a personal touch.
