It is a place where prominent authors like Tolstoy, Pushkin or Dostoyevsky created their masterpieces, and the power was wielded by some of the most dangerous leaders in history, including Ivan the Terrible, Lenin or Stalin. Russia is also the place where the magic and mystery of antique rugs and vintage carpets is fully understood and widely appreciated. The vast Russian land, stretching from Eastern Europe to the Far Asia, for centuries has been exposed to the timeless beauty of oriental floor coverings that have travelled through trade routes along with merchants and adventurers. Russia itself has a profound and venerable tradition of carpet making. Caucasian and Bessarabian rugs are deeply rooted within Russian design art and constitute one of the most desirable carpets in the world due to their unique appeal. Most Caucasian rugs display bold geometric or simplistic botanical designs in primary, usually dim hues. The general color palette of carpets from the Caucasus consists of toned, autumnal shades such as brown, black, crimson, ochre, forest green, with accents of navy blue and indigo appearing more sporadically. The large area rugs from Caucasus are thoroughly hand-knotted using various materials particular to the given region, including wool or hemp. Realizing the importance of floor coverings in interiors as well as the value of hand craft and eternal quality, Russians are one of the major recipients of antique rugs and vintage carpets in the world.
