Azeralxcha to Begin Supply of Dye Plants Next Year
Azerkhalcha Open Joint Stock Company will begin to supply dye plants in 2020. Since this is done the first time in our country, there is a need for educational training. The goal is to educate the population about the dye plants and their collection methods. Therefore, this year meetings will be held with the population in the regions. The first event was held in Tangaalti village of Guba region.
Speaking at the event, Chairman of the Board of "Azerkhalcha" Open Joint Stock Company, Professor Vidadi Muradov spoke about the work done in recent years on the development of carpet weaving in our country. It was noted that 21 branches of Azerkhalcha are currently operating in the regions of the country. Three of the branches of the company were established in this region - Guba, Khachmaz and Shabran. To provide Azerkhalcha branches and private carpet manufacturing workshops in the country with wool yarn and to eliminate their dependence on imports, the Wool Spinning-Dye Factory was built at the Sumgayit Chemical Industrial Park. This factory will supply Regional Wool and Dye Plant Supply centers in Nakhchivan, Barda, Gobustan, Shabran and Sabirabad regions with raw materials. The supply of wool started at these stations in May this year. Next year, the dye plants will be collected. The wool collected will be spun to make yarn, and then will be dyed with natural dye plants.
Vidadi Muradov informed the participants of the meeting about the dye plants in Guba district. He reported that there are no plants in nature that do not contain dye. Even the leaves and trunks of trees that do not bear fruits are colorful. There are about 1,500 species of dye plants in Azerbaijan. Most of these dye plants are existent in Guba district.
Agajan Karimov, a resident of Jimi village of the district, said that such work aimed at the development of carpet weaving have a great impact on the welfare of the population. He said that the territory of Guba region is rich in dye plants. At the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, dye shops operated in Guba. Collecting these dye plants requires no expenses. You just have to work hard. Supply of dye plants is an additional source of income for the residents of the district.
