Description

Beautifully crafted, this long hallway runner rug displays white, purple, pink and orange cascading floral clusters in a repeating pattern set against a dark brown field. A narrow pink border carrying white ruyi scrolling symbols frames this rug. The Karabagh (or “Gharabagh” or “Karabakh”) region lies in the Caucasus highlands in eastern Armenia and western Azerbaijan, and over the centuries has often reflected Persian, Turkish and Russian cultural influences. These rugs traditionally maintained a high, very deep pile that rendered them extremely soft and durable.

Karabagh refers to a region, rather than a specific town. It is located in the Southern portion of the Caucasus mountains near what is now Armenia and Azerbaijan. Rugs from this region are known for the variety of designs and beautiful color combinations.

Karabagh has been populated by Caucasian tribes since the 2nd century BC. Its lush, green highlands and lowlands have been conquered many times by different peoples. At the time when this carpet was created, Karabagh was in the hands of a number of states including the Abbasids, Armenians, Mongolians, and Persians.

Many of the classic designs that are well-known as traditional motifs in Persian rugs can be found in this piece. You can see variations of the cross, boteh, and acanthus leaf. Many of these symbols appear in a primitive form that would later become more complex over the years. The many different cultures that both passed through the area and that occupied it and fought over it, brought their rug designs with them. The result was a rich repertoire that still inspires weavers today.

These rugs were woven in small shops or individual homes, using traditions that seem to have arisen in the 13th century in the region. The rugs were important symbols of wealth and the rug weaving traditions were passed down orally through song and poetry. Rug weaving was the main vocation for girls and women.

The soft earthy colors of this magnificent antique long and narrow Karabagh hallway runner rug are sure to warm any dark and cold hallway of your home. In addition, the beautiful floral pattern is sure to dress the space as well by addition just a touch of sophistication and history.
