Azerbaijan Lahij Portrait of female carpet seller

The ancient village of Lahij in the Upper Caucasus was once an important trade and craft centre, with artisans creating copper adorned ornaments and knives, weaved cloth and leatherware before mass-produced factory goods saw the town decline. Today, the town’s artisans mainly sell to tourists, but it’s worth visiting for Lahij’s cobbled streets and cosy workshops.
