Antique Caucasian Soumak Carpet, circa 1880-1900

About

Soumak is a tapestry technique of weaving strong and decorative textiles used as rugs and domestic bags. It is a type of flat-weave, somewhat resembling but stronger and thicker than Kilim, with a smooth front face and a ragged back, where Kilim is smooth both sides. Soumak lacks the slits characteristic of Kilim, as it is usually woven with supplementary weft threads as continuous supports. The technique involves wrapping colored weft threads over and under the warp threads, adding strength and embroidery-like pattern. This lovely antique Caucasian Soumak carpet measures 4.9 x 8.1 ft and is from circa 1880-1900.
