Tribal-Kazak

(Pronounced Kah-ZAHK)

Kazaks are known for their indigo blues, reds and ivories, as well as their casual and warm appearance. Our Kazak rugs are almost entirely naturally-dyed, however, Kazak natural dyes are commercially farmed natural dyes (such as indigo and cochineal) and are therefore less labor intensive for our artisans than hand-gathered natural dyes. The reason for the phrase "almost entirely naturally-dyed" is because some artisans choose to augment their natural dyes with some commercially-available dyes in order to create the precise color they desire. The wool in Kazaks, like the wool found in Chobis and Gabbehs, is hand spun using a drop-spindle.

  • Knot count: Over 100–144 knots per square inch
  • Colors in each rug: 4–7 colors
  • Composition: 100% wool on a cotton or wool warp and weft.
  • Type of knot: Turkish
  • Production: A 9'x12' rug could be completed in 9–10 months by four to five experienced artisans working five to six hours a day.
