We know that oriental carpets have patterns and colors suitable for their geography, culture, and lifestyle. The inevitable changes in the carpet culture over time led to the emergence of new and modern carpets, consisting of combinations of oriental carpets, adding richer and different designs to our lives.
We have not made any concessions on our planet, people, and culture on this journey. We designed modern carpets without harming the environment and using completely natural materials, by improving old techniques. In addition to the traces of the past, we produced durable carpets that are completely minimal or contain the lines of our age but adhere to the old weaving techniques, in line with your needs and demands.
Until the 21st century, neither stores nor e-commerce sales channels offered product customization to their customers in any industry. Advances in software and design have made this easier and more feasible than ever before. Now end users can directly customize product color, design, functions, and add-on features. In this way, the personalized product is not only appreciated but also unique.
Ararat Studios immortalizes any of your imaginable designs by turning them into products in a unique way, using the oldest weaving techniques and methods. For example, we turn your child's first painting into a carpet in any size you want. We also work for you on motifs or patterns that introduce your company, are important to your customers, and that you want them to see.
You can examine the works we have done for our customers by selecting the modern category from the collection pages of sample carpets.

Weaving a completely natural and valuable rug is both laborious and important. Next to the looms, you must have a team that knows the art of weaving. Weaving looms occupy large areas. Ararat Rugs can weave the largest one-piece rug ever. We certainly do not assemble the pieces, we weave very large rug orders on our one-piece weaving looms.
Our weaving looms, where we produce any oriental, modern, or customized rug you want with completely natural methods, host one to five employees at the same time.
In the photo, you see the rug produced on a loom and our teammate. To inform you, we have prepared the anatomy of the rug-weaving loom for you.
We know that the rugs we own are very valuable to us, regardless of their age. There are some rugs whose age is expressed in hundreds of years. One way or another, each of them has different meanings for us. They are valuable to us.
We do the restoration and repair of antiques and valuable rugs like these. The materials and colors used are analyzed in our laboratories by our expert teams, and the process is started by drawing up the lists of needs. And as a result, your rug will be delivered to you again as if it has never been damaged or restored.
We are aware that this is a very delicate and difficult process. Our experience and capabilities of more than forty years show that we have achieved results that are highly satisfying to our customers.

We protect the environment and people and use the blessings of nature to have these magnificent colors that you see in our completely hand-woven rugs. All these eye-catching colors were obtained from nature without the use of any chemicals and gave color to the wool.
We answer your questions about the colors we use in our rugs and meet your demands. We like that these colors come completely from nature. It is great that they are natural, but it is also nice that they are very durable and long-lasting.
In the photo you see a modern rug woven entirely with the methods described here. We aim to display the color scale in another way.
Respecting our planet and people is our most important duty. That's why we need to be honest and respectful in everything we do. In addition to the relationship of the rugs we produce with history, the materials used must also adapt to this.
The yarns we use are entirely obtained from live sheep only. The obtained wools wait to be dyed as spun after undergoing a series of processes by human hands. We also have rugs produced with entirely natural colors of thread without being dyed.
We also meet your yarn needs, whether dyed or ready to be dyed. Our teams are happy to answer your questions for more detailed information.
