The countries located in this region have a rich weaving tradition, which was heavily influenced by the Silk Road running near or through them in the past. Amongst all carpets originating in Middle Asia, Karabagh rugs seem to draw the most attention and for a good reason – not only are their patterns absolutely stunning, but also the quality of their weave is unmatched.
