Daghestan Rugs

Daghestan means “land of mountains” and encompasses the northeastern region of the Caucasus. Rugs from this area have symmetric knots on wool warps and either wool or cotton wefts. They often feature an all-over or lattice pattern and are found mostly in smaller sizes, especially during the 19th century.
