This superfine-quality Kazak rug is extremely soft and tightly knotted.
The Kazak designs originate from Old Caucasian rugs and are now mainly woven by Hazara tribes in Central Afghanistan. This method of hand-knotting and weaving is called Hazara Baft or sometimes Chapat Baft meaning ‘flat’. The Kazak rugs are so flat that one can clearly see the full detail of the design from the back. Kazak rugs are 100% wool on a cotton base. All the yarns used are vegetable dyed. The Kazak rugs are bright contrasting colours with geometric patterns and tend to be red, yellow, or gold and blue in colour. Designs can include animals, flowers, and medallions – similar to tribal rugs but are almost always implemented with straight lines.
