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 most unusual of antique Caucasian Karabagh 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 area 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 for sale are Shirvan, Dagestan, Kuba or Kazak carpets.
