Guide to Daghestan Rugs

 

Daghestan Prayer rug, North East Caucasus Lot 9

Daghestan Rugs

Prior to the coming of the Russians Daghestan was only the Mountainous area of what is now Daghestan and the flat area near the sea was Derbent. When the Russians set up their administrative districts they combined the two and called it Daghestan. I should have more Daghestan rugs and I might. The problem is that Daghestan rugs can look like Shirvan rugs or even Marsali rugs.. The key to identification is that the Daghestan rugs have a deeply ribbed back. On a Kuba rug look for warp depression of about 45 to 70 degrees and Daghestan rugs to be over 70 degrees. I place Daghestan Rugs in the Lesghi Group

When the Russians set up their administrative districts they combined the two and called it Daghestan. I should have more Daghestans and I might. The problem is that Daghestan prayer rugs can look like Shirvah rugs or even Marsali rugs. The key to identification is that the Daghestan rugs have a deeply ribbed back. On a Kuba rug look for warp depression of about 45 to 70 degrees and Daghestan trugs to be over 70 degrees.
