Kazaks are known for their indigo blues, reds and ivories, as well as their casual and warm appearance. Our Kazak rugs are almost entirely naturally-dyed, however, Kazak natural dyes are commercially farmed natural dyes (such as indigo and cochineal) and are therefore less labor intensive for our artisans than hand-gathered natural dyes. The reason for the phrase "almost entirely naturally-dyed" is because some artisans choose to augment their natural dyes with some commercially-available dyes in order to create the precise color they desire. The wool in Kazaks, like the wool found in Chobis and Gabbehs, is hand spun using a drop-spindle.
