|Last Quarter 19th Century|
The Kazak region of the western Caucasus has woven boldly patterned, strong coloured rugs in scatter sizes since at least the beginning of the 19th century. Various villages each specialize in their own particular designs: Bordjalu, Karachoft, Sewan,Lori Pambak, Shulaver, etc. Many Kazaks, however have no village name, but are clearly recognizable as belonging to definite types and this is one such attractive example. This is a rather large and colourful weaving from the Kazak district. The blue field displays five hooked lozenges forming a central pole medallion,detailed in ivory, golden yellow, res and aubergine. The back scatter employs variants on the hooked diamond and octagonal super stylized rosettes. The red main border utilizes a chain of hexagons,some with pointed brackets, each enclosing a geometric " s ". More such " s " 's appear in the red inner border. As with most Kazaks,the foundation is all wool with wefts dyed red. Most Kazaks do not exceed 5x8 or 6x8 size, so this one is exceptionally large.
