This profession is an Armenian style handicraft from ancient times. In particular, it was the profession that was at the forefront of Armenian women. Countless carpets and kilims that adorned the magnificent houses and even the palaces of kings were woven thanks to the delight and skill of Armenian women. Carpet weaving has come to this day and developed further. The secrets and fine points of this work, which have been handed down from generation to generation, are still preserved and the breadwinner of the masters also provides the income of the businessmen.

The ‘Carpet and Rug Course’, which has been closed for a while due to the pandemic, has reopened its doors in accordance with the pandemic rules, with the normalization period starting on June 1.
