Wool on wool - Russia - Mid 20th century

Welcome to Passion d'Orient:

The term Kazak is used generically to classify a heterogeneous group of carpets from various parts of the Caucasus. The Kazak carpets of the 19th century were knotted entirely in wool; they were carpets with long, shining velvet and large colourful patterns of a geometrical type that varied corresponding to the area of production. Over the course of the twentieth century, the beauty of their colours was rediscovered as well as their original and fanciful designs, always made from memory by women who passed them on from mother to daughter, passing on this great tradition over the centuries. This is how Caucasian rugs began to be appreciated and consistently sought after by enthusiasts and collectors, reaching outstanding prices and taking on a prime position in the panorama of oriental rugs.
