In general the Kurdish rug is a rustic, strong woolen rug, mostly with dark color tones, geometric designs and simplified floral patterns. Kazak has its origin in the carpet making region of the Caucasus. The beauty of the old and new Kazaks lies in their deep and clear colors as well as their generous geometric patterns. Usually these rugs are higher in pile and therefore softer and heavier.
