FLAT WEAVE RUG. SMART CARPET REVIEWS. 47TH PLACE CARPET ONE.
Hand-woven Soumak Kilim Oriental Area Rug 7'8" x 5' #102
Approx. 7'8" x 5' (234 cm x 152 cm). Material: Wool. This is a unique and one-of-a-kind Soumak kilim rug from Afghanistan. This particular rug is woven in the Soumak technique where the weft is wrapped around the wrap in a variety of complex combinations, which gives the weaver the ability to draw free-flowing designs with interesting textures and directions in the weave. This technique produces a slight herringbone effect on the face of the rug. The easiest way to recognize Soumak weaving is to turn the rug over and note the unclipped strands of weft (mostly, but not always) hanging from the back. The use of this technique can be traced back to 2000 B.C. Please note that the color may look slightly different than the picture, as it depends on the type of light under which the rug is viewed or photographed.82% (7)

It is colored with vegetal and organic dyes, and can be used on both sides. Maimana is the capital of Faryab province in northern Afghanistan, and has a long tradition of making flat woven kilim rugs. These rugs are mainly woven by Uzbeks who are prolific kilim weavers, and have settled in Maimana since the thirteenth century. Mostly woven by Uzbek women, these kilims are constructed in slitweave or double-interlock technique. They are usually composed of large geometric shapes such as diamonds and triangles, with a wide geometrically patterned border incorporating many traditional designs. Please note that the color may look slightly different than the picture, as it depends on the type of light under which the rug is viewed or photographed.See also:
