Delegation led by Khizri Shikhseyidov, the Chairman of the People's Assembly of the Republic of Dagestan paid a two-day visit to Lankaran.

During the visit to Lankaran, the guests from Dagestan got acquainted with the Lankaran branch of Azerkhalcha Open Joint Stock Company.

It was stated that the branch was put into operation on October 15, 2018, with the participation of Ilham Aliyev, the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan and first lady Mehriban Aliyeva.

The construction of the branch building began in March of 2018 and it was carried out with high quality. Modern working conditions for the operation of 150 weavers and 14 administrative workers are created here. The building consists of a textile workshop, administrative room, warehouse, canteen, medical room, carpet sale shop, conference room and other sections. Original carpet designs woven mainly in the villages of Astara, Lerik, Lankaran, Masalli and Yardimli districts are given priority in the studio.

It was noted that the weavers working here were involved in the preparatory training courses organized by Azerkhalcha to improve their skills in carpet weaving.

It was emphasized that over a hundred carpets have already been finished in the branch in a short period of time. The Lankaran carpet-making workshop, created by the head of the state with a great vision, contributes to the development and maintenance of carpet weaving traditions in this region.

Guests were impressed by the carpets woven here.
