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

New Location!

Dear valued Customers and Friends,

We are excited to announce that as our business has once again outgrown its space, we have moved into a larger building in Long Island City.  In the meantime, we have significantly increased our collection of fine antique and semi-antique rugs through recent acquisitions. We are now located at 43-01 21st  Street, Unit 110F, Long Island City, NY 11101.

This location is even more desirable since Queensboro Plaza, which is two blocks away, can easily be reached by bus or subway from Manhattan in less than 15 minutes. Moreover, we extend complimentary pick-up and delivery service as a courtesy to all of our customers.

In addition to our over half-a-century of combined expertise in repairing antique and semi-antique Oriental rugs and European tapestries, we have increased our capacity of hand-washing them at our new location.

Undoubtedly, your precious rugs must receive the utmost expert cleaning and repair services to maintain their beauty and integrity for generations. We are committed to providing you with the same meticulous service as we have provided to several museums, an auction house, and many collectors. Building long-term business relationships with our clients is the most important aspect of our mission.

Please do not hesitate to call us at 212.717.5400 or send us an e-mail (info@hayko.com) if we can be of assistance to you, or simply answer any questions that you might have about fine rugs and tapestries. To visit our showroom, we are now by appointment only. Schedule your appointment today. We will be delighted to hear from you.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

H a y k o

Hayko’s Custom Carpets “A Classic gets an Extension”

Hayko’s Custom Carpets

A Classic gets an Extension

Hayko Fine Rugs and Tapestries has built its reputation on deep know how of oriental rugs. As restorers, and cleaners, and dealers of fine oriental rugs the Hayko expertise is unsurpassed. Hayko also shares his talents with the world through his carpet-weaving workshops. Now a thoroughly modern addition extends the experience of oriental carpet weaving into the modern world through high-end handmade products that are customizable.

Hayko now offers contemporary custom rugs, bringing the skill and craftsmanship of oriental rug weaving ever closer to the customer, giving you the option to either completely custom design your carpets, or to select from a variety of existing classic and modern patterns with color changes to match the scheme of your interior. Through direct collaboration with a Nepalese manufacturing partner, these custom rugs are handcrafted in Nepal using traditional materials and techniques, to provide a completely comparable quality of carpet to your custom designs.

 

This modern extension allows you, as a designer or consumer the flexibility to creatively adapt traditional craftsmanship and integrate it with modern design that suits your need, and at the same time bring individuality to your pieces that was never before available unless you traveled to the source. Precedents do exist, such as the Ziegler Mahal, which was an oriental rug adapted to European tastes. Before 1880 the only exported carpets were mostly local manufacture, that just happened to be exported abroad, but the Ziegler company capitalized on the popularity of the design, but adapted it to the tastes of their clientele, and now they have become classics in their own right.

From now on, Hayko’s patrons have the opportunity to express their tastes and enjoy the outcome in a whole new way!
