Object History

Chi Chi rugs were woven south of Kuba in Azerbaijan, which is modern day Daghestan.  These weavers were famous for producing fine, tribal geometric rugs full of vivid colour. The main field design is comprised of stylised floral motifs in geometric form, nearly always represented in rows.  The geometric floral design in the border of this rug contains symbols that are derived from plants and flowers.  These were important to the people of Chi-Chi as they signified fertility and growth among the weavers.

Object Condition

Brilliant condition and nice corrosion to the brown main border, typical of this dye which had high iron properties to it.  Good sign of early age in antique rugs too.
