Earthquake Announcement: Malatya, 2023-02-06

A magnitude 7.8 earthquake with an epicenter in southeastern Turkey near the border of northern Syria has killed hundreds of people and caused widespread destruction today. The center is very close to our Malatya headquarters and we have been in close contact with our families, employees, and business partners in the region since the earthquake happened. All of the employees, weavers, and families are fine and healthy, there is some damage at their homes and we will continuously support them in recovery. We will continue our production as before to support our weavers and families. Our heartiest condolences on the loss of lives in Turkiye due to the earthquake. Ararat Rugs stands in full solidarity with Turkiye. -Hakan KARAR
