In design, these antique rugs are similar to Kazaks, but you find many motifs and elements that are unique to the area. This rug is from the southeastern area of the Caucasus Mountains, which is perfect for producing wool that is soft and durable. This area of the world is isolated and remote. The tribal carpets were woven using only what was available to them in the local area.

It would not be until the 1870s when the Transcaucasian Railway would allow the rest of the world to see these beautiful pieces. This rug was created before that time, in a world where the tribal traditions that had existed for millennia were still untouched by the outside world. That is one of the features that makes this rug even more unique.

The area rugs of this region use a distinctive technique with two rows of weft between each row of knots. This gives them extra strength and highlights the utilitarian nature of these pieces. These Karabagh rugs were created for warmth and protection against the harsh elements. In our modern homes, this creates a soft, warm piece that adds an element of coziness to the room.

This antique Caucasian Karabagh rug is beautiful, and it is a rare find because it represents a people and culture that were, at this point, untouched by the modern world. This Karabagh is a perfect piece for a Boho Chic room where it represents an authentic piece of tribal art. It is also an excellent addition to a collection because older rugs from the area are hard to find on the open market.
