Marvelous Antique Caucasian Chi Chi Runner, Origin: Caucasus, Circa date: 1900 – Caucasian rugs from the Kuba region are prized for their brilliant colors and unique tribal designs. This gorgeous piece is a beautiful example of the work of the Chi-Chi peoples and their rug weaving traditions. Several types of antique rugs can be found in this region, and they all have tribal rug designs that make them favorites among rug collectors and interior designers. This gorgeous example uses geometric designs and brilliant floral motifs in a charming folk art-inspired design.
Each of the villages in Kuba has a unique style that is easily recognizable and represents the unique artistic expression for which this region is known. One of the features that makes Oriental rugs from the small villages of the region special is that they were often made on primitive looms using only the local wool and plant materials that were available to them. They are a reflection of the land around them and hundreds of years of weaving traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.
The design of this gorgeous antique runner rug uses large, repeating motifs, but it also has a spontaneous pattern that seems to evolve as a reflection of the personal choices of the artist. You do not find the precision that one expects from rugs produced in the larger cities, which makes this piece an even more special connection to the people and their culture.
This antique Caucasian Chi Chi rug is perfect for a hallway, along a wall, or as part of a layered look to connect two sections of the home. Its tribal design makes it perfect for a Boho Chic room, where it would be perfectly comfortable among large plants, baskets of natural woven materials, and wood grains throughout the space. It gives the room a cozy feel that is perfect for creating your personal sanctuary away from the rest of the world.
