January 2019 ~ Pazyryk Style
The world’s oldest known pile carpet – discovered in a Siberian tomb preserved by permafrost for over 2000 years. Widely reissued in many size, it remains a staple design due to its history and animated figures platted in non-mirroring formation and geometric design.

March 2019 ~ Kazak Style & Antique Kazak
Kazak Antique/Modern – Kazak means “rough-rider” and describes a race of restless, roaming people from the Caucasus region. In this antique rug, rich indigo blues ground the quivering medallions which express the weaver’s dreams and hopes. Kazak designs may have originated in the 19thcentury in a Southwest Caucasus village possibly by Armenian women on a horizontal nomadic loom. Our modern version is now woven by their modern descendants with wool warp and weft using Ghiordes knots. An ivory ground contrasts beautifully with the multicolored medallions showcasing the rich ethnic traditions.
April 2019 ~ Heriz Style
Trendy greys and Curaçao blues featured in the richly recreated Persian Heriz design will stand out in a transitional home or office setting.

Unreconciled borders add to the authenticity of the most popular design from Iran in the last century.

Modern day adaptations are traditional in Persian carpets and while contemporary weavers from other countries maintain the detail required to create high value as a tribal creation in the market.

All amazingly fitted on a scatter-sized treasure, perfect for a wall hanging or gallery setting in the home.
July 2019 ~ Moroccan Style
Moroccan rugs experienced popularity in the West with mid 2oth century designers – such as Le Corbusier & Herman Miller – who combined the thick piled Berber rugs with their sleek modern furniture.
