The Caucasus Mountains, which stretches 400 miles between Europe and Asia, contains Mt. Elbus, the highest peak in Europe. Despite harsh winters and a terrain composed of ancient rock that is regularly subject to strong earthquakes, the area was an important section of the Silk Road and served as a home for nomadic groups seeking refuge from unfriendly lands. As a result, rug makers were influenced by all the different cultures that passed through. They created sophisticated, geometric patterns with animal (both real and imaginary) motifs with strong, contrasting colors on small, portable looms. Until 100 years ago, natural dyes were still used and rugs were made for personal use, rather than for export. Antique Caucasian rugs, whether thick weaves from areas such as Kazak in the more mountainous regions or flat weaves from areas in the lower slopes such as Shirvans, are renowned for their artistry and originality.
We are always happy to collaborate with you on a custom carpet that meets all your specifications...and your wildest dreams! Of course, it will be woven on our very own looms with the best materials under the supervision of our experts.
