Soumak rugs most likely originated in the Shirvan region of the Caucasus. In present day, they are primarily woven in the large weaving districts of India.
Soumak rugs are different from piled rugs because of the unique weaving techniques used to create them. Unlike piled area rugs, they do not have a pile at all. In fact, they are more closely related to a tapestry that you might hang on a wall.
