This Afghan rug is a pure wool flat-weave. Unlike most of our rugs, Kilims are flat-woven and have no pile. This makes them lighter and more affordable than similarly sized items in our range.
Soumak rugs were traditionally weaved in the town of Shemakhi located in eastern Azerbaijan. Today Soumak rugs are weaved throughout the middle east. Designs are typically geometric and are inspired by traditional Caucasian rug designs. This piece features an eight-pointed star motif which is typically found within many soumak rugs.
This rug has cream colour background which is contrasted by the reds used in the pattern and border.
