Antique Sumakh Kuba, 280 x 210, in excellent condition

Material: Wool on wool
Manufacturing period: 1850-1899
Condition: In very good condition

This very old craftsmanship was carried out in the Kuba area, located in the Caucasus.
Contrary to Kilim and Verneh, which were woven, Sumak rugs are made with the wrapping technique and precisely every four threads of the warp are wound with a weft thread that forms the design (work weft), which then goes back by two warps. In this technique there is a whole series of variations: with or without weft threads in the bottom fabric, with herringbone ornamentation or with unidirectional chain wrapping.
Despite being over 100 years old, the model on sale is in like new condition, almost hard to believe, accompanied by the Mollaian guarantee, where it was purchased in 2003.
The carpet has not undergone any restoration work.

  • The items were advertised as in perfect condition and working but in realty both items were not working properly and need spare parts, some scratches and shipped without any basic cleaning.

    The items when they left were fully functional, and you can not expect that things that are 20 years old do not even have a scratch.
    I do not understand these reviews for the sole purpose of claiming discounts.
