The vision of Vartian
Vartian - The Carpet Company has a passion for beautiful carpets. They aim to underline the work of architects and the beauty of what already exists such as room concepts, pieces of furniture, and decorative objects. Vartian love to use their experience to design carpets that reflect creativity, diversity, and harmony. Their rugs are made by people, for people using centuries-old weaving techniques aided by the efficiency of modern technology.
Vartian remains hugely passionate about carpet knotting, viewing hand-knotted rugs as a work of art that are handcrafted over months by master weavers who have learned their trade over years. Vartian only uses natural, renewable materials when creating their hand-knotted carpets. Due to their high quality, they are particularly soft underfoot. Discover Vartian hand-knotted carpets here.
The Passion collection comprises an exclusive and partly personal range of carpets that are characterised by creativity, variety, inspiration, and first-class execution. The choice of vibrant colours, the implementation of sometimes complex designs, and inspiration from personal life experiences lead to fascinating compositions made from the finest Tibetan highland wool and silk.
Remixed Classics represent the worlds of past and present combining centuries-old oriental carpet art with influences from modern culture. Extraordinary effects, brilliant colours, and daring combinations find their way into unique masterpieces whose creativity surprises and inspires again and again.
Pure Contemporary carpets are created using a combination of traditional carpet knotting and modern design. The abstract form of expression of the collection is inspired by natural phenomena as well as by art - and implemented with high-quality, natural materials to perfect carpet creations that harmonize equally with classic and modern furnishing styles.
