Dagestan rugs are usually woven in the republic of Dagestan in the eastern Caucasus (Russia). Dagestan is now the southern edge of Russia abutting Azerbaijan. The Dagestan rug of the 19th and early 20th century tends to favor shades of blue over red and it is more likely to be all wool than the Kuba rugs from neighboring Azerbaijan. Edges are also more likely to be of blue wool, and the backs of many of these rugs appear ribbed. Dagestan rugs are finer than the Kazakh types, but less fine than rugs from the vicinity of Kuba to the south.
