Carpet Collection

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

This bracelet was inspired by the "Ketebe" pattern.

Ketebe is the plural form of the Arabic word "Katib" (katib was a name given to a private secretary). In carpet terminology, ketebe is a name given to a medallion of cylindrical or elongated form, which is reminiscent of the "Gyol" pattern.

If the borders, the center border in particular, are formed of Ketebe ornamentation, in this case they are called as Ketebeli. If a large area of a carpet is decorated by different Ketebe, in this case they are called Ketebe-bendlik. The names of the master, painter or customer were occasionally written on ketebe.
