Crafts

The art of the traditional craft in Meghri is almost completely lost but once included gold-smithing, black-smithing, masonry, tailoring, carpentry, straw weaving, textiles (wool, cotton, silk), rug and carpet weaving, embroidery and lacework.  Rug styles included designs with ornaments in rhombs (quadrilateral of equal sides) running carpets and others similar to Persian carpets (with rhombic patterns and pictures of leaves and birds) and classic rugs with images of dragons.  Special weaving for floors with two-sided carpets and colored woven textiles were wide-spread.
