More about the provenance Karabagh, ca. 1910 | Caucasus

Karabagh is located in the Russian part of Azerbaijan and is therefore part of the Caucasus region. Karabagh is actually the name of a mountain area (with black soil). It has been under Persian reign repeatedly. The population mainly consist of Armenians, settled down Turk peoples and Russian immigrants. The Karabagh area has been influenced heavily by near-by Turkey in the quantity of rugs being made. One typical characteristic of Karabagh rugs is a soft brick-red (also being called Karabagh-red among carpet experts). The designs often resemble the Persian Farahan (Feraghan). Newer production of Karabagh rugs is rather rare, there are mostly old and antique Karabagh rugs found in the market.

This Karabagh, ca. 1910 has a "Herati" or "Mahi" design (has its origin in Herat, ca. 16th century, short for "Mahi to Hos" meaning "fish in the pond"). A rosette is surrounded by a rhombus which is again surrounded by four bent leaves. The name "Mahi" meaning "fish" was given to this design because the leaves resemble swimming fish.
