Carpet Museum

Carpet making is a very old and highly developed craft.

Traditionally, Azerbaijan has been one of the world centers for making carpets.

Since medieval times, there have been four major geographic centers of carpet-making in Azerbaijan, including Guba-Shirvan, Garabagh, Tabriz, and Ganja-Gazakh.

Each of these schools is distinguished by its styles and patterns as well as manufacturing technique.

Khazar University‘s Carpet Museum serves both as a museum and as a workshop.

The workshop is run by professional craftsmen.

In addition to serving as a small production unit for making carpets, the museum and workshop are also open for use by students taking courses in fine arts.
