Textile hunting in the Caucasus

“Flanked by the Black and Caspian Seas, hemmed by Russia, Turkey and Iran, the Caucasus is one of the most culturally complex and fascinating regions on Earth. Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan -collectively the Trans-Caucasus countries- are each ethnically, socially and religiously distinct with common threads of a shared heritage. A corridor of the fabled Silk Road that for centuries served as the physical and ideological bridge between East and West, the Caucasus has benefited from generations of crosspollination. Resilience through times of oppression has strengthened ideals of national identity and produced a diverse panorama of material culture that endures today.”
