The hallmark of the Beljik is its remarkable colours, from varying shades of deep reds, blues and blacks. These rugs are generally considered to be the finest of all tribal style rugs. They are made with finely-spun wool and knotted into intricate geometric patterns with complex borders.
The wool for these carpets is only taken from the belly of the sheep, greatly increasing the number of sheep required to produce this wool and therefore the price of this wool. Beljiks sometimes have needlework detailing along their fringe and bound edges, adding to the overall intricacy of the carpet.
