In 1995, two partners Mavyan and Westlake, opened a carpet retail store in Victoria. After a successful 17 years the store closed.
We are proud that the original partner, Ara Mavyan, has opened a new store to continue the long standing traditions of quality carpet sales and service.
This store has a large stock of new carpets and serves as a drop off point for hand wash cleaning & repairs of throw rugs to be carried out at the Tolliday Carpet Services Cleaning plant in North Vancouver.
We look forward to seeing you at the Victoria Store at 943 Fort Street!
We are pleased to announce a partnership with Bespoke Tibetan Carpets as their exclusive Western Canadian dealer. They produce high end wool and silk carpets that are custom orderable in a variety of sizes and colours. They use high plateau Tibetan sheep wool with a variety of natural and synthetic dyes. The first shipment has arrived and ready for viewing at our Granville street store.
We are pleased to announce that we are the exclusive dealer for Vartian Artisan Carpets in Western Canada. These are a very high quality modern carpet collection made in Nepal using wool and silk materials. They are artisan carpets like you’ve never seen before — the colours and designs are licensed productions from modern painters and artists throughout the world such as Andreas Reimann, Sascha Dettbarn, Harald Gangl, and Koen Lybaert among others.
We are working on a new website to showcase our extensive antique rug collection. We are the premier antique dealer in Western Canada for collectable and antique carpets. We offer collection management and auction services to advise our clients who wish to purchase antique carpets from auction houses including evaluation, negotiation, and bidding. We also purchase antique rugs and are open to private clients who wish to sell their pieces.
And, of the highest importance, we also provide our own service facility for hand washing, restoration, and conservation necessary to keep these valuable antique pieces in good condition.
