Chi Chi rugs are a type of Caucasian rug. They are woven by a tribe called the Tchechen who inhabit the mountains of northwest Daghestan. Chi Chi rugs are very rare and popular with collectors. The field is typically blue or red and they are woven with Turkish knots.

One of the most popular designs includes a small, all-over mosaic pattern in the field. One of the borders almost always has rows of eight petalled flowers which are woven between the bars of a Greek Meander as seen below.
