Vintage nomadic Azerbijani hand woven tribal rug 290 cm x 110 cm.
Azerbaijan tribal rug.
Azerbaijani rugs are traditional rugs made in Azerbaijan. The Azerbaijani rug is a handmade textile of various sizes, with a dense texture whose patterns are characteristic of Azerbaijan's many carpet-making regions. Traditionally, the carpets were used in Azerbaijan to cover floors, decorate interior walls, sofas, chairs, beds and tables.
Carpet making is a family tradition transferred orally and through practice, with carpet making and rug making being solely a women's occupation. In the past, every young girl had to learn the art of weaving carpets, and the carpets she wove became a part of her dowry. In the case of a newly married son, it was his mother who wove a large rug for his new household. Traditionally, men sheared the sheep in the spring and autumn, while women collected dyestuffs and spun and dyed the yarn in the spring, summer and autumn.
This rug was made within the last ten years and is fabulous quality. The pile is 100% wool and in superb condition.
Traditional style design in rich reds and dark blue black with yellow borders.
This is an unusual size at 290cm x 110 cm so a super fit for a hallway. Super condition with very little sign of wear. This piece will get better and better with age.
