Carpet Collection

As the first Azerbaijani jewelry brand, Resm has recently presented its unique collection inspired by ornaments and designs of Azerbaijani carpets.

Buta is the most ancient and liked oriental motif and the name most likely derives from the Persian “boteh”, which means a shrub that looks like a thistle.

The ornament of buta was so popular with the British that they borrowed it from India and reproduced in their textiles. Since then, it has been known in the West as the Paisley pattern, the name of a Scottish town, famous for these fabrics.

Buta constitutes a fascinating example of how a basic idea can be interpreted in a variety of ways by different cultures. The meaning of buta is interpreted in various ways from pine cone to palm crown to flame, which had religious significance as a symbol of immanence and eternal life.

Thus, according to the latter interpretation, to give someone a piece decorated with buta is akin to wishing long life and lasting memory.
