DAGESTAN RUGS: HANDMADE WONDERWORK
Dagestan rugs are renowned for their beauty since ancient times, mentioned as early as by Herodotus. The Runo online rug store is delighted to offer you a unique collection, with new rugs complemented by a few vintage ones in still pristine condition. Bright colours and understated geometric patterns make our rugs extremely decorative.
Thanks to fast dyes, the colours of the yarn do not fade over the years. Burgundy red and blue dominate the colour range of Dagestan rugs to symbolise the natural elements of fire and water. The palette is more extensive, though, with lots of shades of brown, yellow and green.
The complex ornamental pattern has two functions at once. In addition to its aesthetic component, the pattern plays a sacral role, with profound significance embedded in each of its elements. There are protective patterns and averters, some serve as keepers of the hearth and family ties. Some bring good luck and fulfil wishes; others lend the purity of intentions, prosperity and longevity to the owner.
Dagestan handmade rugs can be read like sacred writings but it takes understanding of their secret language that has come to us from the depths of the ages. Each detail of the pattern has its own significance. Most patterns symbolise the nature around man and household items. Over a dozen different types of rugs are made in Dagestan, and they can be split into four types: piled rugs, no-fluff rugs, felt rugs and combined rugs.
Runo-Carpet offers you a large selection of handmade rugs, each distinctly unique. All rugs are professionally cleaned before shipment. International delivery is normally made at the rates of the EMS Russian Post.
