Gendje is a town centrally located in the midst of the traditional rug-weaving area of the Caucasus Mountains. Situated on the main road connecting Baku and Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, the name Gendje also refers to the mountainous area surrounding the town. This rug is a beautiful visual delight, it offers a novel combination of naturally dyed colors such as a particularly potent saffron yellow, rich indigo, warm madder red and clear ivory. A remarkable level of ingenuity can be seen within the repeating diagonal stripe design traditional to the village of Gendje in the Southern Caucacus Mountains, known for its finely crafted, joyously spirited antique tribal rugs. This rug has vivid color & is in beautiful condition. 11' x 3'3". From the Ben-Tcahvtchavadze Collection of Ontario, Canada. State: City: Date: c1900 HWAC# 83500
