The Kazak designs originate from Old Caucasian rugs, and are now mainly woven by Hazara tribes in Central Afghanistan. This method of hand knotting and weaving is called Hazara Baft or sometimes Chapat Baft meaning ‘flat’. The Kazak rugs are so flat that one can clearly see the full detail of the design from the back. Kazak rugs are 100% wool on a cotton base. All the yarns used are local dyed. The Kazak rugs are bright contrasting colours with geometric patterns and motifs, mainly red, blues and Greens.
Our Kazak rugs are made in two qualities-
Fine Kazak small knots of vibrant rich colours which are highly detailed with a velvet like sheen to its surface.
Village Kazak has larger knots in softer colour creating bold simple geometric patterns with a matt surface effect.
