Armenia is situated south of the Caucasus and north of Persia, on the routes to Turkestan, Asia Minor, and the West.
Over the years the original culture of the Armenian people has produced wonderful works of art across various fields, such as architecture, painting and sculpture.
Still today, Armenia is a region of monuments, writers, poets and musicians.
The heart of Caucasian Armenian carpet production extends between the Karadagh and Karabag (Kasak) regions.
This production was one of the most significant in the world - their reasonable prices, despite the high artistic value, the highest quality materials and the diversity of shapes, attracted an enormous number of collector customers.
