  • It is a visit to a Museum of carpets which starts by the factory itself and show you how carpets are made from the beginning. It is not a mise en scene for tourists as is sees clearly the carpets are Yes really made in this site. The Museum houses interesting carpet although obviously the end thereof is intended to buy any at the store. It is worth

  • The excursion goes on operating the factory, where the ancient Armenian technologies (manually and using natural dyes) make real Armenian carpets. Carpets there are very old (ancient history). There are life-size reproduction of the most ancient carpet in the world, found in the Altai (Russia) (original in the Hermitage). Many carpets have a history of its own. One of these was cut during the Armenian genocide mother and given to two daughters with the words: "If the halves of the carpet will find each other, and our family connect". There are carpets and silk. Can the Plait knot on the carpet! These are carpets and articles (for example, quality bags) from the material of the carpet, which was for some reason zabrakovan. The guide was simply gorgeous!
