Caucasian rugs are primarily produced as village productions rather than city pieces. Made from materials particular to individual tribal provinces, the rugs of the Caucasus normally display bold geometric designs in primary colours. Styles typical to the Caucasus region are Daghestan, Shirvan, Gendje rugs, Kazakh and Quba rugs. Several carpet styles from contemporary northwestern Iran also fall largely into this bracket, such as the Ardabil rugs.

Caucasian Carpets & Covers is the first book to offer a comprehensive view of nineteenth and twentieth century knotted pile rugs and flat-woven textiles from Caucasia in the light of recent research. Written by two acknowledged experts in the field, the text is securely based on original written and photographic sources, coupled with a systematic analysis of woven structures.The collapse of the Soviet Union and the consequent opening up of communication and trade between the West and the newly independent Caucasian republics has resulted in the release onto the market of previously little known items, in particular flat-weaves. This development calls for a re-evaluation of the subject of Caucasian weaving, a demand which this book seeks to answer. The authors suggest that utilitarian flat-woven covers and containers - many of them spectacularly graphic and colourful - are the true traditional products of Caucasia's weaving culture. This is a departure from previous books written in the West on Caucasian carpets, which have tended to concentrate either on pile-woven village rugs, or on tribal bags, covers and trappings made by nomads whose traditional range straddled the present political borders between Transcaucasia and northwest Persia.Further light is shed on the subject in the authors' documentation of Caucasian knotted pile rugs, which shows that many examples of the popular types which are often thought to be 'authentic' nineteenth century (or even eighteenth in some cases) village weavings, are in fact part of a well-organised commercial production for the Russian and Western markets, which began in the latter part of the nineteenth century and continued well into the first part of the twentieth.

Mavegar
This book is one of the few in depth analyses of flatweaves from the Middle East and the only on the Caucasian area.
Beautifully illustrated with classic and rare examples.
The authors are the best researchers in this field and the most knowledgeable about the many complex flat weave techniques practiced so brilliantly in this area.
John Wertime provides the technical and aesthetic expertise for the most part, and Wright the ethnographic angle.
