Dagestan is located at the Caspian Sea with the port city of Derbent and the capital Machachkala. Several tribes like e.g. the Lesgians, Chercesses, Darginem. Many Russians have been settled there when Dagestan was still an autonomic Soviet republic. Over 30 languages are spoken there. Rug making has been going on there for many generations already. The designs are often light and fine and create a sort of mosaic character. The clean and and balanced designs as well as the pleasant color contrasts are very pleasant to look at. Often you have star medallions and stylized blossoms. Altogether a fine and valuable Caucasian rug.
