A very handsome antique flat-weave from the Caucasus, woven in the intricate "Sumak" brocading technique, with rich details and in a very pleasing color palette derived from natural dyes. The Classic three diamond medallion layout is rendered in a whimsical manner, with variations in the sizes and shapes of the medallions. Caucasian sumaks like this display a very sophisticated aesthetic, inherited from earlier weaving traditions of this prolific region. They were prestigious floor coverings, often commissioned by wealthy local patrons. This piece is in very good state of preservation after only minor repairs.
