The Jajim stripe has been a source of inspiration for textile designers for many years. The most common designs came from Persia and were made from wool, we have managed to source some rare and fine silk designs from Azerbajan, there are all made in the traditional way, hand woven and dyed. Azerbaijan has a strong tradition of silk weaving, processors reel the silk filament of cocoons onto spools. Producing high-quality silk cloth for the national headscarves known as kelagai is another whole industry. To this day, many stages of production are done by hand – including printing with traditional patterns and soaking in brilliant dyes. Historically, kelagai were created in Sheki and Baskal by men – usually elders. According to tradition, a woman throwing the kelagai between fighting men can stop the bloodshed, and a girl accepts a proposal of marriage by giving her kelagai to the boy.
