16330 Kazak Caucasian Circa 1900

Category:
Antique Kazak carpets are made with the symmetrical Turkish knot, as are the majority of Caucasian rugs. Interestingly, “Kazak” carpets are not from Kazakstan (which is on the opposite, eastern shore of the Caspian sea) but are from an area in what is now Armenia and Georgia.  The word probably derives from the Russian for Cossack – originally Christian Russian and Ukrainian serfs who fled from feudal landlords, and were known as vicious warriors.
Description
