The historical fate of Georgia was significantly determined by its geographical location. Georgia has been invaded by many countries, which caused many hardships to the country, but relations to vary civilizations and their cultures helped Georgia to develop such cultural and life models in which religious and cultural tolerance among different populations had a leading place. One of the many examples would be Borchalo rugs, which have been created by the Azeri population of Georgia, who settled in Georgia in the XVI century. In these items one can see both their ancient homeland’s atmosphere and stylistic features of centuries-old Georgian culture.
