Kuba Traditional Area Rug
Kuba rugs Noted for their precise drawing and detailed design, antique Kuba rugs are probably the finest and most tightly woven antique rugs from the Caucasus. Closely related to Shirvans and Dagestans, they are distinguished by a dense, ribbed structure and higher knot count. While medallion compositions do appear on Kubas, they are best known for their meticulous allover patterns of small, carefully worked motifs. Some of the more well known and sought-after Kuba types are the so called “Chi-Chi” and Konaghend patterns, or the Alpan and Zeykhur designs. If Kazaks are the most powerful of Caucasian Rugs, Kubas a surely the the most elegant.
