Kars is a collection point for village rugs. Kars rugs are often called Kars Kazaks. They tend to look like Kazak rugs woven in the more subdued palette of eastern Turkey. I attribute this to the large number of Armenians who lived in the Kars area and then moved to the Caucasus from the first quarter of the nineteenth century on. I remember a dealer explaining to me that the difference between a Kazak and a Kars Kazak is like the difference between Tomato red and tomato soup red. Kars Kazaks has soft colors and real Kazaks have bright clear strong colors.
