The rarest, original Azerbaijani carpets woven in the Nagorno-Karabakh region of Azerbaijan in the 19th and early 20th centuries will be reproduced. The Aghdam branch of the Azerkhalcha Open Joint Stock Company, which is operating in the Guzanli settlement, will produce the carpets belonging to Karabakh group. The carpets preserved in the museums, private collections, as well as the carpets gathered from across the country will serve as a prototype for the newly woven carpets. Historically, carpet-weaving has occupied a special place in the Azerbaijani culture. Along with other regions of Azerbaijan, this ancient kind of art was widely spread in the Karabakh region as well. But this region’s carpet weaving traditions were of a unique nature. In order to revive the rare designs and preserve the uniqueness of the Karabakh carpets, the weavers, who worked in the Aghdam carpet-weaving factory, prior to the Armenian occupation, were involved in the process.
