The geometric designs are inspired by old Russian and Caucasian rugs which are now rarely made.
Today Kazak and Shirvan carpets are woven in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
At high KAZAK qualities hand-twisted wool is used (handspun wool) dyed with vegetable colours. Many times the selvage is double or triple, woven simultaneously with the carpet (that means it is not added at the end) making it more beautiful and durable.
The final finishing of the carpet is a special stone-wash, giving it a old look with more faded colours.
Kasak rugs look well in traditional, modern but also classic decorations.
