Karabagh Traditional Area Rug
Antique Karabagh rugs Eagerly sought after by collectors as well as designers, have one of the oldest and most varied design traditions of any antique Caucasian rugs. Many are descended from the classical Caucasian carpets of the eighteenth century. Others are more closely related to Kazaks, with large medallion patterns and a more tribal geometric sensibility. But still others have realistic floral ornament related to Aubusson and Savonnerie carpets in the West. But whatever their orientation, Karabaghs represent the best in quality and design among the antique rug styles of the Caucasus.
