Besides the outstanding weave and distinctive designs, the Kazaks are beautifully constructed handmade rugs, with rich and distinctive Kazak colours.
Observe this stunning rug; It has striking jewel like colouration with stunning reds, blues and ivory. The distinctive traditional patterns are Caucasian in origin and the pile is cut short to emphasise the bold geometric designs. Of particular interest is the change in dye-lots or an "abrash" which is synonymous with the style and craft of cottage industry rugs being knotted on an indoor vertical loom, and dyed in small batches of highland wool.
The shades that you see on the surface is the result of hand-spun wool and natural dyes ingeniously employed in synch. When the hand makes seven different movements to tie just one knot, it's like alchemy - art that you can walk on.
Construction: Cut Pile
Material: 100% Highland Wool with natural dyes
Size: 210 x 125cm
How to care for your rug:
Vacuum regularly to prevent dirt from the surface
If spills occur, do not rub or spread the stain. Simply blot the affected area with a dry cloth or a tissue to absorb the stain and work towards the stain.
Use warm water diluted in clear white vinegar to manage the dyes
It's recommended that you rotate the rug (not too often) to equalize the surface wear
If heavy furniture is placed over the rug, use a protector to avoid damaging the surface of the rug.
If your carpet is of hand-knotted wool, do not worry about furniture indents, simple vacuuming against the pile will prop up the surface once again.
Professional cleaning: Every year, depending on the usage of the rug
Surface shedding: Non natural materials will not shed. Hand Knotted rugs do not shed.
