Cottage Industry Rugs
The cottage industry has a long history in the Caucasus. In the seventeenth century Caucasian weavers were producing rustic versions of Persian workshop carpets. This dragon carpet, is a typical example of such weavings. The term ‘dragon’ refers to the stylised S-shape motifs in the design. Persian influenced designs were flourishing around this time. Most pieces were woven on looms no more than two metres wide (approximately eight feet). This was about the maximum width for cottage weavers. However, the product often exceeded in quality and technical craftsmanship compared to that of the workshops which were supplying the courts. The patterns were obviously based on the sophisticated and complex originals, but in the hands of the Caucasian cottage weavers the carpets are coarsely though sturdily woven.
