This distinctive antique runner was skillfully handwoven by Turkic people primarily inhabiting Kazakhstan, over a century ago. Using symmetric edge knots and asymmetric ground knots, these Caucasian runners are made from a wool pile, withstanding the test of time.
The colouring in this Antique Caucasian Kazak runner has aged and developed over the past 140 years, resulting in this wonderful range of natural colours, making a Kazakh Runner of this condition and colouring particularly unique.
Similarly to other rugs woven by tribes in the greater Turkestan region, this Kazak runner features bold geometric patterns with a traditional border typically compiled of 2 narrow patterns which frame the rug.
Three octagonal medallions sit boldly in a field of stylised plant and blossom motifs and the whole design is enclosed by a Kufic border, perhaps the oldest and most elegant of designs found in Trans-Caucasian weaving.
Gallery rugs of this age and type are incredibly versatile and complement period and contemporary interiors as the texture and clarity of the design resonate well with both styles.
