Ancient Ganja carpets or Gadim Ganja carpets also belong to the category of carpets that made in Ganja carpet-weaving school. The carpets were named after Ancient Ganja where they were produced. At the same time, the art critics called these carpets “Ganja carpets”, “Ganja-Paisley carpets” or “Ganja carpets with Paisley”. Ancient Ganja carpets were produced in Ganja city, in the carpet-making point around Ganja, as well as in the Shamkir region which is located 40 km north-west of the city.
Typically, the composition of the middle field of the Ancient Ganja carpets is dominated by paisley patterns called Ganja -Buta. Ganja-Buta patterns, which are typical for Ganja carpet-making school, are sometimes laid on the diagonal. There are pile patterns on the left and right sides of the middle field of the carpets. The pattern is a religious symbol.
