"Cossack Tribe Rug"Carpet entirely hand knotted, pure wool, vegetable dyes, size: 1.90cmX1.20cm. Kazak (Kazakh or Kazakh carpets): Hand-knotted carpets from the area north and west of Lake Sevan in the southwestern part of the Caucasus. Originally, these carpets were named after the village of Kazak (Azerbaijan), where they were made until around 1925. These are the best known and most appreciated Caucasian rugs. They are characterized, among other things, by a long velvet and the fact that they sometimes have up to eight weft threads between their rows of knots. These relatively spaced knotted carpets have a high quality wool pile which gives them good strength. Most are approximately dozar in size (about 200 x 120 cm) and their width is often remarkable in relation to their length. The colors are bright and the patterns large and original.
