- SHIRVAN-KUBA CARPETS ( PEREPEDIL. KONAKEND, SEICHOUR, CHICHI, SERAPI ) The textiles of eastern Transcaucasia could well be referred to simply as 'Shirvan'. However, the district of Kuba was the premier rug producer in quantity as well as quality.Rug-making work was carried out in the local villages of Perepedil, Konakend, Seichour and Chi-Chi, and often these smaller village name attributions cause problems with identification of various Shirvan-Kuba rugs.Considered some of the very premier Caucasian carpets, they have a short, even and soft pile with very detailed knotting and intricate design.The majority of these carpets are small, with fine hand spun wool throughout, though there is some of use of cotton in wefts and side finishing. The dyes are exceptıonal and sophistıcated.The color range is considerable, favouring rich indigo blues with red as the less common colour. As a highly respected group of carpets, exceptional pieces can reach high prices on todays markets
