|The Kazak Rug
When we read Kazak Rug in the rug trade we mean a
rug made in what was the Kazak Khanate prior to the Russian capture in
1805. Kazak (Qazaq) is an administrative district inmodern day
Azerbaijan. If that is where it stops that would make things much
easier. We also refer to many of the rugs of the Akstafa region as
Kazak. The rugs of Borchalu are also counted as Kazak. The rugs of
north half of the Erevan Khanate are called Kazak. We can also include
many more attractive rugs from Gendge and even Karabagh that people
call Kazak. .
