The carpet was donated to the Azerbaijan National Carpet Museum.

Notably, Chalabi carpet is one of the brightest and most distinctive in the Karabakh group of carpets in Azerbaijan. One of the earliest Chalabi carpets dates from the late 17th - early 18th centuries, being woven during the reign of the Safavid dynasty.

Chalabi carpet is a  woolen pile rug with a symmetrical knot and two weft threads.

The overwhelming majority of Chalabi carpets had a red background, the designs of the border are characterized by a variety of options. The beams of the central medallion have a white background color, while the cruciform motif of the central medallion is usually green.

The transformation of the carpet's medallion over a long period testifies to the artistic and symbolic evolution of the carpet motifs.

In the early versions of the medallion design, preference was given to plant motifs, then geometric, abstract and symbolic motifs as well as ornaments such as a sunflower flower, a radiant sun, crystal, diamond, etc., where the color scheme resembles a flash of bright light.
