Sumak Kordi are flat woven rugs which come from the north-eastern province of Khorassan. The producer of these rugs is a small Kurdish tribe, which has migrated into this area in the late 16th century from west Iran. Sumak is the name for a special flat weave technique, called weft wrapping. This technique gives an embroidered appearance on the front and loose ends on the back. The Kurds use a vivid and diverse colour palette designing their rugs. Primarily the rugs come in geometric patterns adorned with figures and floral motifs, arranged in horizontal stripes.
