Kazaks are a type of Armenian rug that were woven in the south of the Caucasus region, between Tiflis and Erevan. The production of rugs in the Caucasus region is limited, only done in a few villages, therefore these beautiful designs are being reproduced by Afghan weavers in the northern (Turkoman tribes) and central (Hazara tribes) parts of Afghanistan.This rug is made with 100-percent vegetable dyes. The knot count per square inch for this rug is 180. The pile height is 0.25 inches. This area rug has a geometric pattern in shades of red, ivory, light blue, light green, blue, and gold.

Story Behind the Art:
This particular rug was made by the Hazara tribe, with 100-percent wool, and done by the village weavers within the Hazara tribe in the Bamyan province of Afghanistan. Due to the handmade nature of our rugs, the size may vary from as advertised by 3-4 inches. Regular vacuumming and annual professional cleaning will keep your rug looking new for years to come. Herat Oriental has been providing beautiful, authentic, handmade rugs to Worldstock for over 10 years. Worldstock has given us the opportunity to create jobs for over 2,000 local village weavers, which helps them to greatly support their families. The majority of the weavers are women, who live in the villages of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and Iran. As we grow with Worldstock, we are able to create more jobs for female weavers who otherwise would not have the opportunity to do so. The community also thrives from rug weaving as the local farmers benefit from wool sales, and the local artisans create natural and vegetable dyes for the weavers to use in their designs.
