This the 12th rug from the loom of Heqiqet and her neighbor Ziyafet. Although they are unrelated this dynamic duo have been producing rugs side by side since our project started. They started this project in April 2019 and had it off of the loom in August of the same year. This took a little longer than expected but I have learned that these two do not rush to complete a rug. They are meticulous and tie each not with deliberate exactness which is evident in this product.
Fachralo rugs are very popular and sought after by rug collectors the world over. Antiques can sell for up to $16,500! The town of Fachralo still exists to this day and is located in the historic Bordjalou region of Georgia. The medallions in the middle were first woven in the town of Fachralo and are the main distinctive of theri carpets. It is unknown what the medallion represents, but it is likely that it was a tribal symbol of this area. Almost every Kazak rug can be identified by large geometric shapes and deep rich colors as do most rugs in the wider Kazak Caucasion tradition.
Estimated Age of Antique Inspiration: circa 1890
