PRODUCT DETAILS

ANTIQUE SUMAK

CAUCASUS, END OF 19TH CENTURY

400x325

CARPET #3436

Soumak is named after the village of Shemaka in the Caucasus, where this technique was widely practiced, but it was certainly not invented there. Soumak has been widely practiced throughout the world of antique carpet production, from Central Asia to Iran, the Caucasus, and Turkey. Soumak fabric is used for the warp and wefts woven without knotting and usually in a fabric called herringbone and the threads hang down the back. Originally from the Caucasus, this flat-woven rug follows the design canons of this region. Three octagonal red medallions on a blue background, with geometric profiles that expand the size and classic geometric motifs completing the field. The border is very wide with two main streets with a blue and red background, and motifs of octagons, flowers and leaves. The exterior street is noteworthy with the Seykur motif with a raw background and dark blue profiles. These types of rugs are highly sought after by collectors.
