Researcher of historical materials Khazhak Sirekanian wrote on his Facebook page: “The oldest carpet in the world is of Armenian origin. A carpet dating from the 5th-3rd centuries BC was discovered in one of the tombs of Sibir. The well-known carpet specialist Urich Shurman considers the carpet Armenian, as the carpet is characterized by the Armenian creative style. The Hermitage experts came to the same conclusion, noting that the carpet threads are painted with a red vordan color created in the Ararat field. The technique of double carpet knots is considered Armenian, which the Persians call Armani buff, that is, Armenian business. Similar textures were found in Karmir Blur and Areni Cave.”
