The antique rugs from Shirvan are known for their geometric designs and graphic impact. The Shirvan weavers were limited in the traditional plant carpet dyes and only used materials that were available locally. They are known for their ability to create rugs with a high visual impact using only a limited range of colors. This beautiful reddish rust color rug shows the balance and symmetry that you expect from a Shirvan rug.
The popularity of Caucasian rugs was a result of the Transcaucasian Railroad in the 1870s that allowed European buyers to gain access to them. Their popularity eventually led to large workshops being set up with standardized designs that used modern chemical dyes. This led to flooding the market with rugs that lacked the spontaneous quality that shows the human touch.
This small scatter size area rug is unique in that it retains its primitive, tribal character. The motifs on the end are different colors, which might indicate that the weaver ran out of a certain color, which you would not see in a rug produced in the larger workshops. This rug shows elements of a small village carpet and the spontaneous decisions of the weaver, making it a unique piece of self-expression at a time when unique, individual creations were being replaced by mass production.
This is a smaller rug that is perfect for an accent or as the foundation of a small table. You could use it to create a vignette, or anywhere a small rug is needed. The rug could also be easily mounted as a tapestry and used as a unique piece of wall art. Layered rugs over carpets are a popular trend that can give the room depth and a cozy feel.
The best part is that you do not have to limit yourself to only one. You can have as many tribal rugs as you like, and this one would be the perfect addition to your collection. This brilliant Shirvan is bold and has a charming character that it will bring to the room. Tribal rugs are the perfect complement to a room of plants, handmade pottery, and beautiful natural woodgrains. This one is a beautiful piece for those who only want a small tribal accent in their space to give it a touch of charm.
