The wool used to make these rugs is from Ghazni north of Afghanistan which is silk-like soft and durable.
The Kazak designs originate from Old Caucasian rugs and are now mainly knotted 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 very tightly knotted and made with 100% wool on a cotton base. All the yarns used are vegetable dyed.
The Kazak rugs are bright contrasting colours with geometric patterns and motifs, mainly red, blues, and Gold.
