CAUCASIAN  CARPETS

Caucasian Carpet are from the areas South, East and North of the mountain chain of the Caucasus. Caucasian Carpets made before 1925, can be divided into five groups namely; Kazak, Karabach, Sjirvan, Kuba and Dagestan carpets. The carpets from the Karabach area often have finer patterns and resemble Persian carpets. Outside these groupings there are also Gjandzja, Silé and Verni carpets.

The significance of these beautiful carpets are their geometrical patterns, often with an imaginative and plentiful way of expression. Sometimes curvilinear animal and pattern figures occur in the carpets.

Today, newer carpets are produced in Pakistan with inspiration from the Caucasian carpets which are coloured with natural plant dyes. These carpets are durable and have a relatively short pile and are sold under the name “Kazak”
