 “The situation of Nakhchivan carpet weaving in the early XVIII-XX centuries"

International Journal of Information Research and Review published an article themed “The situation of Nakhchivan carpet weaving in the early XVIII-XX centuries\” by Honored Art Worker, Doctor of Philosophy in History, Professor Vidadi Muradov on the basis of theoretical and practical materials.
In the article, it is noted that, carpet weaving which occurred in the land of Nakhchivan in the ancient times has become an independent art field since the early medieval period. The abundance of manpower and raw material resources caused the land of Nakhchivan to become one of the carpet centers in the medieval period. It is not accidental that, Nakhchivan is considered one of the first places which produced carpets as shedde and verni. In the early XVIII-XX centuries, demand in carpets in foreign markets highly increased the development of this kind of art in Nakhchivan. A considerable number of carpets produced in the region were sold in markets.
It should be noted that, V.Muradov\’s researches on the subject of the history of Nakhchivan carpet weaving have been reflected in the articles published on different scientific journals and newspapers of the republic, in the books named \”Nakhchivan carpet-makers\” which have been published in the Azerbaijani, English and Russian languages in 2013, in the film named \”Azerbaijani carpets. Nakhchivan group”
