Genuine Kazakh, Leshki star.
It still has a beautiful, full high pile.
The black colour of the background is a very dark brown.
The top and bottom stars feature a camel-coloured field in camel wool.
Original and undamaged edges.
The short end has a kilim end with fringes formed by the white wool warp threads.
These are braided at the bottom.
The weft threads are made of the same brown, nearly black wool. View the detail photo.
Black weft threads always make for more powerful colours.

The whole pattern is characteristic for these Leshki-Kazakh carpets.
The central border has an S-pattern consisting of stylised dragons.
The red/blue inner border is very familiar.
Beautiful, coordinated natural colours.
Wonderful full wool - great condition.
