Carpet Exhibition

Azerbaijan Trade and Cultural Center (ATCC) and Latif Karimov Foundation Launch New Carpet Exhibition in Washington D.C.

latif_karimovAzerbaijani scholar and carpet-maker Latif Karimov (1906-1991), born in Shusha, Azerbaijan had meticulously researched the history of Azerbaijani carpets and systematized 144 styles based on geographical regions (cities, towns, villages).

Azerbaijani carpets are sub-grouped under four major regional groups, which include (1) Guba-Shirvan School (which also includes Baku); (2) Ganja-Kazakh School; (3) Karabakh School (which also includes Shusha and Jabrayil) and (4) Tabriz School (which includes carpets done in the Azerbaijani populated provinces of northern Iran, including carpet styles of Ardabil province).

Though carpets vary according to region, there are some general characteristics of Azerbaijani carpets characterized by their symmetry, bold design and juxtaposition of colors. Of course, there are exceptions to every generality. Read more at azer.com.

Please review currently exhibited Azerbaijani carpets below and feel free to stop by the Azerbaijan Gallery of the ATCC to see both our special painting and rug exhibitions.

We are located in Georgetown (1212 Potomac St., N.W.) one block from Wisconsin Avenue or two blocks from Key Bridge, just across Dean & Deluca (on M street).

* All of the carpets are available for sale. *

We also have an exclusive collection of Latif Karimov's carpet designs, from which you can pre-order as well. Contact ATCC at:
