Description

This late 19th Century antique Kuba rug showcases the craftsmanship of tribes from the Caucasus region. Warp-wrap technique has an angled stitch, looped back over the warp.

Stylized elements create a dynamic pattern of crisp lines, intricate borders and phenomenal detail in the animal and floral motifs.

This rug’s highly complex construction reflects a substantial commitment of the weaver’s time and attention to transform wool yarns into a finished work.
