Caucasus rugs are one of three major categories of Oriental rugs (the other two being of Anatolian and Persian origins). They all are hand-woven without pile or pile-knotted. Caucasus carpets are characterized by definitively bold colorations and daring geometrical designs.
Technically speaking, Persian carpets today are produced in Northwest Iran, Iran being the modern name of Persia, but officially, this northwestern region is actually Southern Azerbaijan, a nation that was under the defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). It goes without saying that the rug weavers of Persian rugs are Azeris, not Persians (or Iranians). Azerbaijan rugs are not only woven in the same method and with the same kind of materials used before the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917 but bearing the same traditional patterns and designs pre-dating even the 1917 historical event.
This rug was exported from Iran between 1890 - 1915
