Caucasian rugs are made by various tribes in the mountainous regions between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Their rugs are generally small with wide borders and all-over geometric patterns, often incorporating stars, squares and swastikas. The best known include the Baku, Chichi, Daghestan, Kabistan, Kazak, Kuba, Shirvan, the flat-woven Soumak, and the Karabag.

The dominant colours in Caucasian rugs are red, blue, yellow, green and ivory.
