Vintage Soumak

Soumak (also spelled Soumakh, Sumak, Sumac, or Soumac). The technique of making a soumak involves wrapping wefts over four warps before drawing them back under the last two warps. The process is repeated from selvedge to selvedge. They are made in the Caucasus, southern Persia and Anatolia, by the Shahsavan tribe in north-western Persia, and very rarely, by the Balouch on the Persia/Afghanistan border. Sizes vary.
