    Caucasian rugs are rugs that come from the countries that comprise the small region of the world called the Caucasus. This region is the birthplace of Caucasian rugs, the vast majority of which are made in the country of Azerbaijan.
    The Caucasus is a mountainous region in southwestern Asia that was once part of the Persian Empire. In addition to Azerbaijan, the region also includes Georgia and Armenia. Bordered by Russia to the north, Iran and Turkey to the South, the Caspian Sea to the east, and the Black sea to the west, the Caucasus is generally regarded as the traditional boundary between Europe and Asia.Â

  • Amazing Azerbaijani – 1870s Antique Karadagh Rug – Tribal Runner – 3’8″ x 10’8″ ft $1,999.99

    “Size: 3’8″” x 10’8″” ft
    Karadagh rugs can be some of the finest village rugs woven in Northwest Persia. This colorful and elegant runner is an extraordinary example of its type. The wool is exceptionally lush and soft, and the drawing and spacing are beautifully executed. In this rug, a column of colorful diamonds and lobed ornaments are traced against a deep indigo ground. These lobed ornaments combine classic Persian motifs, including palmettes and lobed quatrefoil medallions, with quintessentially tribal elements such as latch-hook diamonds. The thin, radial projections emanating from several of the design elements recall drawing from rugs of both the neighboring Caucasus region and more distant Central Asia. These motifs point to the possibility of a Shahsevan tribal weaver. A rust ground main border decorated with linked, abstracted floral motifs, which is the defining Karadagh border, frames the field.
    Fair condition! No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original. Low pile with worn areas. As shown in pictures.

    Within the antique rugs milieu familiar to collectors and rug enthusiasts, no single group of rugs has had a more checkered or contested career than those woven by the Baluch tribes of western Afghanistan. Perhaps the most rudimentary (and most common) arguments against these tribal pieces came from decorators who often found Baluches to be too dark with a relatively restricted rustics of colors and minimal use of ivory or white. They also pointed to their fragility, due largely to the looseness of their weave and the softness of their wool.
