Our Company

Mayvan Carpets is the premier source of new and antique luxurious hand-woven carpets. We have showrooms in Vancouver  and Victoria BC with a wide range of stock to see and feel.

The Mavyan Carpets story began in Istanbul, Turkey where Ara Mavyan worked years to establish himself as a master craftsman. With decades of experience, Ara moved to Canada in 1989 and co-founded Tolliday Carpet Services in North Vancouver. Ara has since established a reputation in Vancouver as an expert in all aspects of the fine carpet industry.

In 1995, Ara partnered to create Mavyan Westlake Carpets in Victoria and was closed after a successful 17 yearsin business. Mavyan opened a retail outlet on Granville Street Vancouver in the early 2000’s and continues to grow his retail presence with a new store in Victoria in 2019.

The Vancouver and Victoria showrooms are stocked with the best hand-spun wool and vegetable dye carpets. Ara can guarantee uncompromising quality and service because he knows first hand how to select only the finest carpets from top manufacturers around the world.

To select the best carpet for your needs – and to ensure you get the most use and enjoyment out of your purchase – come talk with Ara and experience the fine quality and expertise that sets Mavyan Carpets apart. We also are enthusiastic about working with members of the professional interior design and architecture community.
