The oriental rug-making world is composed of small, cohesive groups of people known as “tribes.” Tribal weavers can be found throughout Iran, the Caucuses, Central Asia, and into Morocco, Turkey, and Russia, and feature rug making traditions that have endured for centuries. Each of these tribes produce unique handicrafts that feature designs that are individual and unique to the tribe. Tribal rugs tend to be smaller, more vibrant, and bolder in their primitive design patterns and colors, featuring designs and weaves that are passed from generation to generation.
Kazak rugs are Caucasian in origin, from the region encompassing Georgia, Azerbaijan, and Armenia. This cultural melting pot was populated by Armenian dyers and weavers, Azeri Turks, groups from the Northern Caucasus and minorities from the surrounding areas. Kazaks are distinctive in their geometric designs and symbolic motifs, often rendered in saturated reds and blues with ivory highlights or fields. They usually feature prominent central or pole medallions, and are adorned with crenelated borders, angular cloud bands, and an assortment of stylized figures, animals, and geometric polygons.
