Kazak rugs’ characteristic feature is their geometrical pattern. The pattern is traditional and can be observed on other carpets manufactured in the Caucasus region. Typical features include numerous medallions, geometrical shapes, lines, and figures on a large scale. The gorgeous contrast in colors is also typical and catching the eye. Beige, teal, indigo blue and rusty red are most characteristic colors.
A Kazak rug may feel thin and that is due to a shorter pile and stone wash. However, as they are made from high-quality hand spun wool, they are very durable. The colors, being quite deep, are also very durable, as only vegetable natural dyes are being used.
It is possible to purchase Kazak rugs of different qualities that depend on the number of knots. The higher number of knots, the greater the density of a rug, which allows more details in a pattern. That can be compared to a modern camera – the higher number of megapixels the higher the sharpness of the picture.
Kazak rugs with the lower number of knots per square inch feel a bit more coarse and are thicker than those woven with higher density. No matter the knots number, they are also extremely durable, excellent quality and well worth their price.
A Kazak rug, with its characteristic pattern and colors, will look great in a modern interior. A rug like this may be also chosen for a room that needs a strong centerpiece or a meaningful statement.
