Description of Design and History:
Lesghistan, with this name , we encouunter another of the mysteries of east Caucasian weaving which scholarship has still to resove satisfacorily.
The Lesghi are one of many tribes who once inhabited the north eastern area of Caucasus .
There would seem to be little evidence for attributing to them the rugs which are currently descreibed in the west by many dealers and wreiters as LESGI. All natural dyes are paramount for the carpet to have more than just decorative value. Beyond that, various dyers had varying levels of skill and invested different lengths of time in dyeing the yarns. The “quality of color”–its radiance and level of nuance within each color–is centrally important. Certain rare colors such as Tyrian purple, saffron yellow, cochineal rose and greens add to the carpet’s value
