Soumak is a method of making handmade rugs with raised patterns. This ancient weaving technique, dating back to the 7th century BC, is still in fashion in parts of Iran and the Caucasus. In the Soumak rug, the colored weft threads of the design lie at an angle to the horizontal, and changing the angle of the alternating rows creates V-shaped rows with parallel lines. On the back of the rug, the loose ends of the pattern yarns hang down freely to form padding; this ragged back distinguishes it from the kilim, which is smooth on both sides. Repeating diamond and star medallions are common in Soumak rugs, as are the elaborate borders. Verneh and Sileh are two famous Soumak patterns.
There are many tribal saddlebags - and even bedding - woven from Soumak. We've put together a sophisticated collection of Soumakh rugs to outfit your home with an essential complementary piece.
