rug sales and production. The Megerian Brother's tradition and integrity
in the fine craft of hand made rug making, and restoration of rugs and
tapestries is world renown. The Megerian Oriental Rug family has been
the benchmark producer of New York City's hand made rugs and tapestries.
Upon this rug families arrival in America from Armenia in 1917, they
established the first Megerian Rug Store on the shores of Manhassett,
Initially, their enterprise in America focused on selling new and
antique rugs. However, the opportunity to apply their extensive
skills presented itself often, and the Megerians quickly
gained a reputation here in America as artisans accomplished in
antique repair. More and more, the Megerians found themselves
applying their thorough understanding of wool characteristics, natural
dyes and Old World knotting techniques to their customers' existing
antique Persians, Aubussons, Savonneries and Oriental rugs.
As time passed, the Megerians expanded their business to
meet the growing demand for fine rugs by buying antique rugs in
need of repair and selling them completely restored. Often, though,
customers would express their wishes for subtle design changes.
Building on their tradition of excellence, the Megerians
took their knowledge and well-honed skills to the loom and began
creating their own rugs. Very soon, they were meeting their customers'
needs by delicately modifying the original, antique designs in their
own reproductions of superb quality.
The Megerians continue to apply their unparalleled skill in the creation
of rugs and tapestries of uncompromising artistry and workmanship.
Each signed piece represents a rare combination of Old World craftsmanship
and the design aesthetics of today's most discerning clientele,
and every Megerian design is copyrighted to ensure its individuality.
Each work is a product of the integrity of the Megerian touch, from
the discriminating selection of original materials and dyes, to
the painstaking attention to knotting technique, to the completely
thorough final inspection in the antique making. Of course, the
Megerians also continue to trade in the world's finest antique rugs
and tapestries, drawing inspiration for their own designs from the
classic beauty of the originals.
The most gratifying
part of the entire effort is the admiration one sees in the eyes
of the Megerian owner; someone who truly appreciates an original
masterpiece that stands apart. Experience the breathtaking beauty
