The Armenian woven arts tradition spans millennia and extends over a vast geographic territory that includes Western Armenia, the Republics of Armenia and Artsakh (Nagorno Karabakh), Javakhk, Nakhichevan and other historic Armenian regions, as well as diasporan Armenian communities.
The sheer quantity and diversity of Armenian rugs and woven arts would make it impossible to showcase examples of this ancient and ongoing tradition in its entirety on one website.
However, the Armenian Rugs Society will be showcasing select samples of the Armenian rug and textile craft, here, within our Galleries section for the perusal of our members and supporters.
The Society will be adding Galleries showcasing compelling rugs, carpets, textiles, and other woven arts from the Armenian tradition spanning the totality of the Armenian topography, past and present.
The Society will, also, be exploring works from the Armenian diaspora and world community that have been crafted by Armenian master weavers, as well as those non-Armenian works heavily influenced by the Armenian tradition.
Currently, the Society is showcasing three Armenian rugs from three different regions and time periods as examples of the amazing craftsmanship, colors, and design ornamentation characteristic of Armenian woven arts.
Please use the Gallery icons below or the navigation bar at the top of each page to explore our Galleries.
