Large Caucasian Sumak

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

A very handsome old tribal flat-weave from Azerbaijan, woven in the intricate "sumak" brocading technique. Combining a tribal design sensibility with the classical weaving traditions of this prolific region, large sumaks like this continued to be woven well into the 20th century. This is a very nice example of the type with a very pleasing color palette.

In excellent state of preservation. Very sturdy and suitable for relatively high traffic use.
