Object Description

A stylish Caucasian Soumac flat weave rug, dating c. 1890 with expressive character with ancient symbols and a harmonious array of vegetable-dyed colours which have aged gracefully.

Another attractive feature of this charming rug is the design on several borders that are skilfully woven in different colours.

A versatile example that adds a timeless character to the space.

We recommend placing underlay under this piece to keep it flat on the floor which we can provide complimentarily.

This early Shirvan Soumac rug is in good practical condition for everyday use with some age-related old restoration. All of its outer borders are still present on the four sides.

A charming example that will add character to a variety of settings.

Object History

Antique Soumac rugs from the Caucasus have a flat-woven pile that is thick, strong and exceptionally durable. They are stronger than kilims. Early Soumac rugs are very finely woven and feature richly detailed motifs. One of the reasons Soumacs are highly appreciated is due to their primitive, tribal character and wonderful, naturally dyed colours.

Object Condition

This antique Caucasian Soumac is in very good to excellent condition, still retaining all of its artistic borders on all sides.
