Instead, their origin is steeped in a blend of all regions across the area. The Kazak are likewise famous in their region for their widespread influences that have inherently influenced their designs. Modern day Kazak weavers still incorporate the teachings and designs of their ancestors. All Kazak rugs share an old, antiquity look to them regardless of their age. This look is given life through the rug’s heavy, dense, and tightly knotted structure. Kazak rugs are woven completely with wool while its wefts and warps incorporate cotton. Each rug consists of at least 100 knots per square inch. Kazak rugs take a hefty amount of time to finish. A normal sized Kazak rug takes at least nine months to complete.

They house big, bold, dominating geometric patterns on a subtle color backdrop, giving it an edge that differentiates it from other rugs on the market. Each rug uses about five to seven different colors to create its elaborate effect. The rugs use bright colors like red, blue, green and ivory.
