This delightful Afghan Kazak rug truly is a standout piece with its bright, playful colours and combination of sharp lines and contrasting rounded shapes, each hand-knotted in light, earthy blue and green tones. The designs featured in this Kazak rug take influence from the Caucasus, with modern pieces such as this one displaying larger, more spaced out shapes than their earlier counterparts.
Typical of Kazak design, the centre of this rug shows three central medallions which use an interesting combination of a lozenge and rectangular shape. The lighter blue and green shade set on a rich red background make the colours pop within the field of the rug, and these bold shapes are further emphasised by the zigzag outlines making up the smaller lozenges.
This Afghan Kazak has a particularly alluring border with shapes representing flowers from a birdseye view, separated by repeating sets of arrows which were likely influenced by the hunting weapons of tribespeople.
This piece is hand knotted using Afghan wool, which is renowned for being extremely hardwearing, and the short pile not only emphasises the decoration on the rug but also makes it easy to clean.
The simplistic tribal designs on these rugs make them highly versatile. They can be integrated with traditional and modern interiors, and the quality of the wool gives them a lavish shine.
