Priced in Mexican Pesos .

Karabagh rug, Karabagh also spelled Karabakh, are handmade in the district of Karabakh (Armenian-controlled Azerbaijan), just north of the present Iranian border. As might be expected, Karabagh designs and colour schemes tend to be more like those of Persian rugs than do those made in other parts of the Caucasus, and it is difficult to distinguish Karabagh runners from those of Karaja, in Iran, to the south. Certain Karabagh rugs also resemble those of Shirvan to the north in Azerbaijan. This comes with the professional under pad (hard to find in Mexico).

The size  is 6'  by 11',  very good condition ( It has been professionally restored).  As with all our rugs you will have 7 days to return it in case the wear is more than you can live with, or for whatever reason. 

Armenians are the earliest known weavers of pile rugs. Ulrich Schurmann, a renowned expert on oriental rugs,

believes that the Pazyryk rug, the world’s oldest known rug (5th cent. B.C.), can be attributed to the late Urartians, or early Armenians, based on the rug’s structure, design, and motifs. Marco Polo and Herodotus are among the many observers and historians who recognized the beauty of Armenian rugs.  They noted the rugs’ vivid red color which was derived from a dye made from an insect called “vordan” (Arabic “kirmiz”), found in the Mount Ararat valley. The Armenian city of Artashat was famous for its “vordan” dye and

was referred to as “the city of the color red” by the Arab historian Yaqut.  After the Genocide, when Western Armenia was ethnically-cleansed of Armenians, with no one to defend their cultural heritage, the rugs that Armenians wove for a millennia suddenly

became “Turkish”. Today, due to the commitment of collectors, experts as well as the Armenian Rugs Society , 

Armenians’ seminal place in rug history is being restored.
