Dearest Armenian Rugs Society members, supporters and friends,
On behalf of the Armenian Rugs Society Board of Directors, I would like to thank all of our members and supporters for their continued faith and dedication to the cause of Armenian culture at a time of great trial and tribulation for Artsakh, Armenia, and the Armenian people the world over, as we all confront the great challenges of both cultural and physical survival now extant in our indigenous homeland.
As the Armenian Rugs Society approached its 40th anniversary in 2020, none of us could have imagined the great atrocities that would be perpetrated against our people and homeland, that very same year, by the Azeri and Turkish fascist states, with the active complicity of a slew of treacherous allies.
Armenian Rugs Society members and supporters were--and are--among some of the most active in providing aid to our brothers and sisters before, during, and after the genocidal aggression against our nation in 2020.
The Armenian Rugs Society, with your continued support, will be redoubling its efforts and programs to continue its mission to support, nurture, and cultivate Armenian woven arts culture throughout Artsakh, Syunik, and all regions of the Armenian Homeland, as well as among academics, artisans, and interested individuals throughout the Diaspora.
Now more than ever, the Armenian Rugs Society and supporters of Armenian arts in general, must rally to address and challenge a new and nefarious wave of attacks unleashed by the Republics of Turkey and Azerbaijan, against all Armenians everywhere, in their attempts to appropriate Armenian woven arts culture as their own and, in so doing, rewrite the historical record of global indigenous arts and culture, by erasing all things Armenian.
With your help, the Armenian Rugs Society can continue promoting Armenian woven arts culture and its production in Armenia and around the world.
We have a challenging road ahead…
But, standing upon the shoulders of giants, together we are sure to work wonders...
We wish you and yours a Joyous Christmas and a Happy New Year…
May 2022 be filled with health and happiness for all…
Armenian Rugs Society
