SoCal Rug masters have a broad selection of Oriental & Persian (as well as Afghan and Turkish) Soumak/Somak rugs. Soumak/ Somak is an Oriental rug, a type of flat weave (tapestry style rug), similar to a kilim, but with a stronger and thicker weave and unlike rugs they do not have a pile at all. It has a smooth front surface and a ragged back, therefore Soumak/ Sumak area rugs are rarely reversible (unlike kilims which are smooth on both sides). Soumak/ Sumak indeed is a technique rather than a place of orgin. The technique originates from the rug making centers of the Caucasus, is also found though in regions of Anatolia in Turkeym Afghanistan and Persia. The designs of the Soumak rug vary. Soumak weavers used historical symbols and geometric patterns and include birds and other native animals in their weaving – sometimes they displayed Persian garden motifs to medallion motifs to palatial designs.
