Minasian Rug Blog

Welcome to the Minasian Rug Blog

Over the years, Armen and Carnig Minasian have enjoyed sharing their passion for Oriental rugs and textiles with the community by presenting public exhibitions in their Chicago Avenue gallery spaces.  Specially curated by rug and textile scholars, these shows were educational and informative—they showcased works of weaving artistry selected from private American collections and the wide-ranging Minasian inventory. Many of the shows were reviewed in Hali, the world’s leading publication of antique carpets and textiles. Past exhibition topics have included Textiles from the Silk Road, Tribal Bags and Trappings, Indonesian Textiles and various presentations on rugs from different tribes and countries.

The blog will feature upcoming exhibitions, news, and informative articles about purchasing and caring for quality rugs.
