Azerbaijani carpets are another visiting card of our country. This art has reached its peak in the Middle Ages and still strikes the imagination of admirers from all over the world.
There are a huge number of types of national carpets: silk, wool, lint-free, and pile. Moreover, there are as many as seven recognized local carpet schools in Azerbaijan!
The most beautiful, of course, are silk carpets (like silk kelagai scarves, and tablecloths), which are made using natural bright colors. This is a very complex process. In the manufacture of carpets, craftsmen weave gold and silver threads. As for scarfs, the ornament is applied with boiling paint with the help of special “seals”.
Azerbaijani carpets are rightfully regarded as works of decorative and applied arts and found in many museums in the world. You can buy them too.
