I’m sharing this project at an early stage of its development because I hope you might be interested in supporting the work, in any capacity you can. I’m aiming to raise $9,500 by February 20th, 2015 to cover the cost of materials and supplies to create a video highlighting my passion.

Holiday Reception on December 6th at Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries

The Culinary-Cultural Nexus – NYC at its Best
Permanent Exhibition of Hayko Oriental Carpets at Nanni Restaurant, Issue #2
by Rogier F. van Vlissingen © 2014

 

NEW YORK, October 8 th , 2014 – Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries left the East Side three years ago, but returned recently with a permanent exhibit at the famous New York restaurant Nanni. Regularly there will be a new picture of a single Hayko carpet on display at Restaurant Nanni, at 146 East 46 th Street, New York, off the corner of Lexington Avenue. It will be a special selection for Nanni patrons.

 

Restaurant Nanni has been a New York Institution for more than 40 years, since its founding 1968 by Luigi Nanni, a native of the Abruzzi region of Italy, offering an innovative fine Italian dining experience, at a time when the dominant experience of Italian food was simplistic, with a heavy reliance on the garlic and oil. Nanni brought Italian cuisine to Manhattan diners. On an average day reservations may come in from all over the tri-state area, and as far away as London, or Texas. With its convenient location, within striking distance of Grand Central Station, it is one of the many New York secrets that seems reserved for those in the know. You would pass it by, unless you knew.

 

Luigi Nanni passed away in 1998, but the Nanni tradition was continued by the current owners, Victorio Miriel and Silvo Sclano, who bought the restaurant from the estate in 2004. Victorio is the public face of Nanni, you’ll meet him when you come in, Silvo runs the kitchen in the best of the Nanni tradition, offering high quality trattoria cooking for discerning New York diners. Once you enter under the non-descript Burgundy red awning that has the name on it, you will pass the coat check and a small area with some tables upstairs, next to the bar and then you go down a few steps to the main dining room, which has picturesque Italian paintings painted directly on the walls. You will usually be greeted by Victorio, who handles the reservations. You will forget you were in Manhattan. It is an enclave of casual elegance that allows you to forget the hustle and bustle of the day.

A picture of this second “Nanni special” of a Hayko Carpet is to be seen on the left wall, right after the telephones. The design is from the Shirvan region of the Caucasus, and it is dated from the 1930’s but the designs go back to the 1880-1890’s. These carpets were produced after the Caucasus came under Soviet control, and they are known as “five year plan” rugs. This particular carpet stands out because it is very colorful, has good wool quality, and its overall design of cruciform and hexagonal patterns.

 

 

Hayk Oltaci, is a master craftsman, and expert in Oriental carpets, and at his showroom/studio in Long Island City (9-20 35 th Avenue Space 3D – www.hayko.com) he offers all of sales, cleaning and restoration.

Description Of Work:
Washed two oriental rugs — one of which had cat urine on it.  He repaired the other rug which was fraying on the edges.
Member Comments:
I contacted Hayko and he responded to my call right away.  I found him via Angie’s list and saw that he works on very expensive rugs.  Mine aren’t super high quality so I was worried my work might not be up his ally.  But that was not the case.  He gave me a quote on the phone for washing my two rugs that equaled about $500.  I had also contacted another company (who was also reviewed on Angie’s list.  That company claimed that one of my rugs was silk (it is not) and that the one rug alone would cost $700 to clean.  The fact that he was trying to convince me that my one rug needed to be treated extra carefully because it was silk, and the fact that he didn’t even have letterhead to provide me with a quote, made me uncomfortable.  I chose to go with Hayko and so glad I did.  He was respectful, informative, timely and did beautiful work.  One of my rugs needed repair and he offered, without pushing, to do the work of repairing the rug if I so wanted.  I decided to go with it (but just have him repair the sides of the runner rather than take care of the whole thing to save money).  When it was delivered today he informed he had gone ahead and done the ends as well and did not charge me any extra.
I highly recommend Hayko!

Description Of Work:
We bought a coupon for cleaning an area rug for $120 which I think is a bargain. At first they wanted to charge extra because the rug was a few inches larger than the 4×6 specified in the coupon. Then we settled on $150 which included a minor repair.
