The region of Shirvan is known for its rich carpet making traditions and is considered home to some of the finest of all Caucasian carpets.

These carpets are knotted using high quality wool and/or silk and typically feature the "boteh" or "paisley" motif. This teardrop-shaped design is believed to represent fertility, life and eternity. Other common motifs found in Shirvan carpets include geometric shapes, flowers and animal figures.

The wool used is typically dyed using natural dyes made from plants and insects. Common colours used in Shirvan carpets include red, blue, green and yellow.

In addition to their beauty, Shirvan carpets also have a cultural significance. They were often used as dowry items and considered a symbol of wealth and status. Today, Shirvan carpets continue to be an important part of Azerbaijan's cultural heritage and are highly prized by collectors and carpet enthusiasts around the world.
