Rare hand knotted Persian vegetable Caucasian Kazaks rug; 4'2" x 3'7". Kazaks are woven in an area culturally influenced by the Armenian people. These rugs are woven with scaled patterns, medallions, and intense, differentiated colors. Kazaks are available in three varieties based on the region, coarsely woven, simple designs with latch hooks and intense colors in madder red, blue, ivory and natural brown.
Over the centuries, Persian rugs have become treasured heirlooms passed on from generation to generation. Persian rug exports began in the 16th Century. Starting in the 1850s, American, British, and German firms established new factories ensuring the art form’s continued development. Royal factories were established to utilize the finest materials and methods of manufacture. Persian rugs are traditionally known for their variety in design, color, size and weave with each being unique. Rug styles are generally named after the village or area where they are woven or collected, or by the weaving tribe in the case of nomadic pieces. The number of knots in a rug can be a general indication of its quality. Knots show how much work went into making the rug. More knots mean more work labor and also make it possible to produce greater intricacy of the pattern.
