The Kaitag live in southeastern Dagestan, and they speak their own language, Kaitag, as well as Dargin. They live in a place that is dominated by the Dargin people, but they have their own ways.
They traditionally embroidered the world-famous Kaitag textiles. They often make them in the style of Safavid Persian art with illustrations of horsemen and riding scenes. The Kaitag made these embroideries for local use in weddings, funerals and for cradle trappings. Others use local herbs for food and for making tea.
