You cannot beat a stunning rug laid down on wooden floors. They just add a certain warmth to the room.
Afghan Soumak Rug with a multicoloured weave. Soumak is a type of flat weave, somewhat resembling kilim, but with a stronger and thicker weave, a smooth front face and a ragged back, where kilim is smooth on both sides. Soumak lacks the slits characteristic of kilim, as it is usually woven with supplementary weft threads as continuous supports.
The technique involves wrapping coloured weft threads over and under the warp threads, adding strength and embroidery-like pattern.
The rug has a three-band border with three central shapes, like eyes running through the middle. A cacophony of colours, red, green, gold, black and different hues of blue all coming together to create an uplifting rug to add to your home.
Good condition commensurate with its age. Some wear across the rug and edges in keeping with an old vintage rug.
