Originating from the western area of the Caucasus populated by Armenian and nomadic Kurdish tribesmen, Kazak rugs should not be confused with the state of Kazakstan. Kazak rugs, like many Caucasian designs, are dominated by highly stylized floral motifs.Reds, blues, greens, and yellows are the main colors used in these vibrant rugs. The rugs in our Kazak gallery are very fine quality rugs based on antique Kazak designs, and are made with natural dyes and Ghazni handspun wool by Turkoman Afghan weavers.
The rugs in our Chobi collection, which are sometimes also called Peshawar rugs, are made with natural dyes and Ghazni handspun wool by Turkoman weavers. The patterns are based on antique designs, and the rugs in our Chobi collection are amongst the finest quality Chobi rugs available. Chobi rugs often have abrash (varying shades of the same color) through the pile of the rug, and the colors are often muted, both of which are a result of the use of natural dyes and handspun wool. The rugs in our Chobi collection are often available in a variety of sizes and colors.
The Patchwork rugs are Made from cuttings of different rugs. Some of the portions have been over-dyed, and some have extremely short-clipped zero piles.
