Majestic Antique Caucasian Kazak Sewan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Caucasian Rugs, Circa date: 1880 – This gorgeous antique tribal Caucasian Sewan Kazak rug from the 1880’s features a unique design known as the “keyhole” pattern. Kazaks are from the southern region of the Caucasus Mountains, which is an area that has a fine tradition of rug weaving that goes back many centuries. They created these beautiful pieces using only the wool and vegetable dyes available to them locally.

The antique Caucasian rugs, especially the Kazaks, are known for their angular, geometric designs and beautiful colors. This one features blues, reds, yellows, cream, and green. The green is a color that is unique to the area. One of the reasons why oriental rug collectors love Kazak rugs so much is that they use primitive designs, and the artists can create works of art using only a limited palette of colors available to them.

For centuries these antique rugs remained hidden in this remote part of the world. In the 1880s, the Transcaucasian Railway opened up the area and allowed the world to experience these works of art for the first time. They quickly captured the admiration of the world and became favorites through the turn of the 20th century. This Kazak rug was created during this time of transition when the world was getting its first look at them, and a new market was opening up to these traditional weavers.

This antique Sewan Kazak Caucasian rug would make a beautiful addition to a collection or in a room with a tribal theme.
