Charm of Talish mountains in Karabakh carpet

Baku, March 31, AZERTAC

Talish carpet derives its name from a large area that spreads along the Talish mountain range on the Caspian seashore. The central part composition of the Talish carpets is both simple and complicated. Previously, the Talish carpets were made of silk. Starting from the third quarter of the 19th century, they were made of wool and cotton.

The carpets are rough from the point of view of the weaving technique with a smooth monochrome central field or decorated with tiny elements and were of simple composition. The elongated carpets with medallions called “pakhlava nakhis” are of complex composition. These medallions that come one after another and are similar in shape but differ in colors form a peculiar decorative composition.
