Discover Authentic Caucasian Rugs at the Best Prices
Caucasian rugs are one of the most popular styles of rugs, loved for their bold geometric and tribal designs in primary colors. These rugs get their name from the area in which they were originally made: the Caucasus. The Caucasus has been producing unique rugs since the 18th century. The antique Caucasian rugs were, however, made as rustic village pieces instead of the fine, intricate city rugs.
Caucasian rugs are a class of their own in the world of antique Oriental rugs. Made by tribespeople who wove them as an expression of their gratitude for the earth and the life that they were able to live, these rugs possess an individuality and a striking sense of boldness that you will not find anywhere else.
The Caucasus is a region that lies at the center of the rug weaving region. And due to its proximity to the Silk Route, the weavers were immensely influenced by rug-making traditions from all around the region. Using small, portable looms, they were able to create their own sophisticated tribal rug weaving tradition. They used designs of Chinese rugs, Egyptian rugs, Persian rugs, and so on, and transformed them into simple yet eye-catching geometrical patterns that were fresh and more spontaneous.
At Beautiful Rugs, we offer a wide array of Caucasian rugs in different designs, colors, patterns, and sizes.
Elevate Your Home with Russian Rugs
Much like the Caucasus, Russia also has a rich rug weaving tradition. Although the country is known for its vibrant culture and complicated history, not many know about its stunning rugs. Russians used rugs as not just decor pieces but also as furniture and insulation during the colder months. It was during the 1960s that carpets became an integral part of the Russian apartment living experience. Massive urbanization led millions of people to leave their rural homes and move into low-cost concrete-paneled buildings in the city. In Northern Russia and the far East, wool carpets were hung on the walls to keep the apartments warm during winter. They also served to keep the rooms soundproof.
So, how did Russian rugs first come to be? In the 18th century, Russia had conquered much of the Asian continent, which resulted in them incorporating the weaving styles of the communities they met along the way. This is why you will find that Russian rugs have influences of Oriental rugs, Chinese rugs, Afghan rugs, and so much more. They are characterized by their use of deep colors and abstract floral patterns, which are borrowed from Oriental rugs, and repetitive patterns and gold tones, which were widely found in Asian weaving cultures during that period.
