The most unusual of antique Caucasian rugs are the rose-patterned ones, clearly created in response to Western tastes. Such rose-inspired designs utilize geometric pink and red flowers, as well as bouquets arranged in garlands with swags, on grounds of dark blue or black. The antique rugs from Caucasus are thoroughly hand-knotted using various materials particular to the given region, including wool or hemp. Some of the most iconic Caucasian rugs are Shirvan, Dagestan, Kuba or Kazak carpets.
