Description

Carpets from the Caucasus and Trans-Caucasus region have a distinctive tribal feel that is captivating and has a primitive charm. This Moghan runner rug was created in the latter half of the 18th century. It would be a perfect piece for a hallway or longer room. Rugs of the Moghan area are known as some of the most beautiful carpets of the region. They use vibrant colors and simple geometric tribal motifs.

The Moghan region is located in an area that is now Azerbaijan, but which was once a part of the former Soviet Republic. Caucasian rug weavers were once a part of the tradition of weaving fine court rugs for Persian nobility. After the fall of the Safavid Dynasty, the region went through a transition, and the carpets took on a more folk art character that began to emerge in the early 19th century. This carpet is an excellent example of the carpets of this period.

Carpets of the Moghan region typically have highly complex designs, but this one has a simpler character. This one has a solid field and elegant floral motif in the borders. The vibrant colors reflect traditional choices and highlight the scale of the piece. The solid field has gentle color shifts that give it character and reflect the light. The wool reflects the light differently and will interact with the natural lighting of the room beautifully. The lighter field makes the rug appear larger, and it will transfer this sense of scale to the rest of the area.

This beautiful antique rug adds a playful character to a hallway or longer room. It is bright and has a soft appearance. Its tribal appeal would be the perfect addition to a Boho chic room, but this rug would also add a special touch to a traditional or vintage room, too. The carpets of the Moghan region have been revered for many decades, and this one is versatile enough to complement a range of modern styles.
