Caucasian Sumak Carpet
- A handsome old tribal flat-weave from Azerbaijan, in large format, woven in the intricate "sumak" brocading technique. This is a very nice example of the type with a surprising color palette and finer that usual weave.
Combining a tribal design sensibility with the classical weaving traditions of this prolific region, large sumaks like this continued to be woven well into the 20th century.
