The Armenian Rugs Society, a non-profit organization founded in Washington D.C. in 1980, is dedicated to the identification, preservation and dissemination of knowledge of Armenian rugs, hand woven textiles and embroideries.

In pursuit of this mission, the Armenian Rugs Society has held symposiums and exhibitions in numerous venues including New York City, Philadelphia, Richmond, Memphis, Ft. Worth, Fresno, San Francisco, Boston, Worcester, Montreal, London, Geneva and Vienna.

To support these efforts, we maintain a data bank of hand knotted oriental rugs, carpets, kilims, bags trappings or any hand woven textile bearing inscriptions woven in the Armenian alphabet or proven to be of Armenian cultural heritage.

All who share an interest in these endeavors are warmly invited to join our membership. We would also encourage those among who own hand woven rugs with Armenian inscriptions or of Armenian origin to contribute their photos to our data bank.
