One of the main purposes of reWoven is to take ancient designs and reWeave them for both the enjoyment of all and as a means of cultural preservation. Every now and again however, a customer asks us to alter a design to combine elements from different Kazak rugs. We would like to share with you just such a project. We call it the Kazak Star. This rug combines the borders of Bordjalou Stars and the central medallion star of the Star Kazak. Although Aybeniz is new to our reWoven roster of weavers we entrusted this unique design to her care. What an amazing job she did! This rug went on the loom on December 15, 2019 and was completed in exactly three months to the day. We are so proud of Aybeniz for bravely taking on this challenge. It was a major step in her development as a professional rug weaver.
