The Megerian family has been involved in the selling, restoration, and production of beautiful oriental rugs for over four generations. Originally from Armenia, the Megerians established their rug trade business in the United States in 1917 and quickly developed an expertise in rug repairing and restoration. Over time, they began to realise the growing demand for different trends and subtle design changes and took their well-honed skills to the loom to create their own decorative rugs. The secret of obtaining and preserving natural colours has been passed down through generations.

Megerian Carpets currently creates luxurious rugs by delicately modifying antique designs and updating colour combinations to reflect modern trends and contemporary aesthetics. Using dyes that can only be extracted from the Armenian highlands, they implement their own special weaving techniques with centuries-old Armenian artisanship. Today, the Megerian family owns the Megerian Carpet Cultural Complex, which houses the factory, the museum of antique rugs, and a shop.
