Armenian Harvest Festival at UConn on September 17

Dear Friends,

I am pleased to inform you that the Norian Armenian Programs at the University of Connecticut will be hosting an Armenian Festival onSaturday, September 17, 2016. The following link provides the details about the program, the time, and the location:

http://armenia.uconn.edu/2016/06/30/09-17-2016-armenian-harvest-festival/

I will be one of the presenters in the featured activities demonstrating “The Art of Rug Weaving:” a hands-on workshop. My colleague from California, Hratch Kozibeyokian will be providing a concise introduction to Armenian Rugs.

With the thought that it would be an excellent cultural experience for anyone who might be interested to attend, I have decided to inform my friends of this Armenian Festival at the University of Connecticut.

Kindest regards,

Hayko

Angie’s List Review Date: April 21, 2016

I am an employee using my manager’s personal account for office tasks and projects that need to be completed. The man picking up showed up at his home address instead because of my error! I called and we sorted everything out (scheduling and phone numbers of where to be reached, etc.).
The man who I spoke with was apologetic about any bumps along the road and extremely genuine in his concerns. You can tell the employees care about their business and pride themselves on the attention they give to their customers; you seldom find this kindness and professionalism anywhere else. You can tell so much about a business in the way they handle any issues or confusions.
As for the rug, it looks brand new…a completely different rug even! It was not cleaned for some time and when they brought it back, we were eager to display it in our editing suite. Clients constantly compliment us on how beautiful the rug is. Thank you Hayko for livening up a black and white office with your gorgeous deep cleaning treatment that brings out the beauty, vibrancy, and details of our Persian rug!

Giving 5 stars for an incredible result and for how well Hayko handled any discrepancies and miscommunications.

THE RUG OF THE MONTH

Dear valued Clients and Friends:

 

During our latest inventory count, we were so captivated once again by very many outstanding rugs that we have decided to share some of the exceptional ones with you each month as “The Rug of the Month.”

 

Here is this month’s pick:

 

TURKMEN YOMUD RUG

4’ 6”  X  6’ 3”

TURKMEN YOMUD RUG 4’ 6” X 6’ 3”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is a fine example of an antique Turkmen Yomud tribal rug. It is probably woven by the Ersari tribe—an ethnic group that is renowned for developing its distinctive weaves and designs. The wool used in weaving this rug is renowned in the trade for its lustrous and hard-wearing properties. It comes from the famous indigenous breed of Karakul sheep in Ghazny province, the southeastern region of Turkmenistan. The carding and spinning of the wool is done by hand. The balls of wool are made into skeins which are then dyed by the weaver’s family.

The black-brown dye used in this rug has oxidizing properties, which is obvious through the erosion of the pile on the background. This erosion also gives us a clear indication of the antique vintage of this artwork—circa 1880s.

 

Turkman Yamoud (detail)

The diagonal rows of an octagonal single diamond-shaped motif in red, ivory, blue, and turquoise is repeated on the black-brown main field. A single stripe replicating the primary border in designs and colors divides the main field into two. The red primary border is decorated with repeated polygonal rosettes alternating in ivory and blue. The secondary inner and outer borders are decorated with the same reciprocating dog-teeth design in alternating ivory, red, and blue.

 

The two ends of the rug are decorated with repeated tree motifs with serrated leaves. The surprisingly random use of yellow leaves on one end; and, the repeated wine-glass single row bordering the “X” shapes on the other end further enhance the charm of this tribal yet elegant rug.

Most of all, I appreciated the promptness and courtesy of the pick-up and delivery, as well as the care of the carpets. Mr. Hayko understood the personal value of the carpets, explained to me their provenance, offered alternative options for repair, cleaned them well, and offered a fair price. He spoke with me directly, politely, and took time to answer my questions. I recommend him and Anthony…whom I forgot to tip for his service. My apologies! (I don’t think he expected anything, but it’s always nice anyway!) | |Thank you!
