(High-Decorative) Instead of hand-knotting, the design of this mesmerizing Caucasian piece from the environs of Kuba is created using the incredibly durable flat-woven soumak embroidery technique and exhibits an intense thematic unity and rigorously observed balance and proportional harmony in the field that extends to the borders as well, where elaborate mini medallions are paralleled by mountain and wave secondary bands. Amidst the larger elements, an intriguing collection of tribal ornaments include enigmatic anthropomorphic figures that harken to totemic origins. Wonderfully rich tones of cobalt, ruby, and rose would make this piece really pop in a wide variety of environments. Traditional tribal Soumak carpets such as this have become of great interest for modern settings as they amplify the clean lines and great expanses of contemporary architecture.
