Azerbaijani rugs and carpets

Azerbaijan is the largest country of the Caucasus region. The capital City of Baku is located 28 metres below sea level, making it the world's lowest lying capital City. The production of handmade rugs and carpets in Azerbaijan dates back to the 2nd millennium BC. Azerbaijani rugs and carpets woven in the 19th century can still be found in the market today, but attract a large price for these beautiful rare rugs. Look out for famous Azerbaijani rugs like Kazak, Karabagh, Shirvan, Kuba and Lenkoran to name but a few. In London's wholesale Oriental rug warehouses antique Azerbaijani rugs can still be found in very small numbers, and would be a valued addition to any Oriental rug collection.
