Nomadic Charm | Kazak Rugs From Russia Caucasus Region
Brilliantly colored antique Kazakh rugs from the Caucasus feature iconic symbols that include geometrically-shaped people and animals, expressive medallions, notched or indented fence borders and oblique cloudbands. Variations of a symbolized ram’s horn are also seen frequently in Kazakh rugs — as a single horn, double horn, broken or cross-shaped horn.
Kazak rugs continue to be among the most appealing and prized of the Caucasian carpets.

However, our antique Russian Rugs Collection, including Kazak and Azerbaijan carpets, beautifully meld with modern, traditional and contemporary interiors wanting a well-traveled vibe from around the world.
While some Kazaks may have stunning all-over patterns, they are most renowned for their distinct medallion designs, geometric compositions, thick pile and original knotting. In addition, Russian carpet symbols and tribal motifs typically represent superstitious beliefs involving good luck, good fortunes for households and protection against evil spirits.

Caucasian Soumak rugs also provide an array of bold designs utilizing oversized, polygonal medallions usually shaped like stars or diamonds.

One of the key features of Holbein designs includes small squares with hooked, horn-like pairs filling in notches along a medallion’s edge.
