The members of the delegation were informed about the traditions of Azerbaijan’s ancient art of carpet-making, and familiarized themselves with the unique collection exhibited in the Museum, demonstrating Azerbaijan’s carpet weaving techniques.
The unique samples of Azerbaijan’s seven main carpet weaving schools, including Guba, Baku, Shirvan, Ganja, Gazakh, Karabakh and Tabriz, depicting ornaments of wild life, birds and plants, are also showcased in the Museum.
