Rugs bearing the name Kazak come from the highland area of the Caucasus in Azerbaijan whose centre is the town of Kazak. Woven by semi-nomadic shepherds of the region. They use fabulous vegetable dyes and high quality hand spun wool from their own herd. Depending on the weave some Kazak rugs can be extremely soft to handle as the wool is light and woven on a supple foundation.
