The source of the rug comes from the book Oriental Rugs Volume 1 Caucasian, Ian Bennett, Oriental Textile Press, Aberdeen 1993, pg.114. This is a boteh rows design rug from the late 19th century, Karabagh Kazak region, Caucasus area. Rugs with diagonal rows of boteh can be found throughout the Caucasus and Persia. In the Caucasus itself, the best-known boteh rugs are from the Baku district in the central east coastal area, one particular group of which is known as boteh-hila in the carpet trade. This design is found also in Saliani pieces from the Baku district, Gendje, and some other Caucasian rugs. However, we should note the somewhat sugary pink, which is a particular feature of many Karabagh weavings. Baku/Saliani rugs differ from most Karabagh pieces in having a cotton or mixed wool and cotton wefts. This rug has rows of botehs covered with floral composition in the field and is framed with a series of borders. The design of the rug is interpreted by our designers, and soft colors are chosen for this rug.
