Azerbaijani carpet weaving takes a very special place in the history of its national culture. The most widespread folk art is carpet weaving. It became part of the regular life of the people of Azerbaijan and turned into the national symbol. On November 2010 Azerbaijan Carpet Weaving was included in UNESCO Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This design is inspired by the various geometrical structures and ornaments of Quba and Shirvan carpets schools. Shirvan school is famous for the sophisticated designs of its carpets. They are characterized by complex geometrical patterns and ornaments. Shirvan carpet group is based on Gordest weaving technique and also includes Agdash, Agsu, Gabala, Gobustan, Goychay, Hajigabul, Ismayilli, Kurdamir, Salyan, Shamakhi, Ujar and Zardab regions of Azerbaijan.
