Soumak (or Sumak) rugs are made with a flat-weave technique common in the Caucuses and Persia. Thicker than Kilim rugs but thinner than hand-knotted wool pile, Soumak rugs are unique floor coverings. These decorative rugs differ from other flat-weave styles because of a wrapping technique that contributes to their thickness, durability, and design. Antique Soumak rugs have tribal designs featuring geometric patterns, animals, and ancient symbols. Soumak rugs make fantastic home textiles, sure to compliment and add a soft touch to contemporary interiors.
