Antique Caucasian Kazak Runner

This distinctive antique runner was skilfully handwoven by Turkic people primarily inhabiting Kazakhstan, over a century ago. Using symmetrical edge knots and asymmetrical 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. A Kazakh Runner of this condition and colouring is particularly unique.

Similar to other rugs woven by tribes in the greater Turkestan region, this Kazak runner features bold geometric patterns with a traditional border typically consisting 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.
