Antique Soumak Repair



We recently repaired a fine antique Soumak that had several worn areas, and a hole in its center field.  The colors of this Soumak, pictured above, are exceptional.  The blue is deep and rich, the oranges, reds, and yellows are vibrant and provide a wonderful contrast.  Soumaks have no pile and are therefore ideal for warmer climates.  They feature mostly geometric and linear designs.  The Soumak above is Caucasian (sometimes referred to as a Russian Soumak even though rugs of this kind are made in the Azeri and Armenian regions).  --www.traditionalrugrepair.com
