Kuba Rugs were considered the best rugs of the Caucasus when they were originally produced.
Antique Kuba Rugs, also known as Quba, is a historic Khanate or administrative district populated by the Lezghi people and Azeri Turks. Located in present-day Azerbaijan, the city of Kuba produced some of the most distinctive and finely executed Caucasian rugs. They are beautifully and richly colored, and they combine cryptic Caucasian symbols with exceptionally decorative motifs. Regional sub-types, such as Konagkend rugs, are often lumped together with the diverse Kuba group.
