Antique Sumakh Kuba, 280 x 210, in excellent condition

Material: Wool on wool
Manufacturing period: 1850-1899
Condition: In very good condition
Rug professionally cleaned: Yes

Very ancient production from the Caucasian region of Kuba.
Unlike Kilim and Verneh, which are woven, Sumak rugs are made with the wrapping technique and precisely with every four threads of the warp wound with a weft thread to forms the design (work weft), which then goes back by two warps. This technique allows a whole range of variations: with or without weft threads in the bottom fabric, with herringbone ornamentation or with unidirectional chain wrapping.
Despite being over a century old, the model on sale is in mint condition, almost hard to believe; with guarantee issued by Mollaian, where it was purchased in 2003.
The carpet has not undergone any restoration work.
Professionally cleaned, in perfect condition.
Insured shipment with tracking via UPS
