\ Our History
November 1922, Samsun, Black Sea: An agreement forces the exchange of population between Greece and Turkey. Theologia Evmirides, a 47-year old Greek widow is obliged to leave her home and family business to immigrate to Greece, together with her five children and her old mother in law. According to the exchange agreement only household articles were allowed for transport.
Theologia found a way to transport illegally some of the finest handmade carpets together with few other precious fabrics. She had five single and two double mattresses. She took out the cotton which was inside the mattresses and filled them with the precious items that arrived safely in Greece without being discovered. These carpets became the establishment capital of AION1922 business.
Theologia and her family moved to various places in mainland Greece, establishing their business first in Thessaloniki, and later moving south, in Athens. For nearly a century, they have continued to work in their ancestors’ trade, as carpet manufactures and merchants.
Coming to date, AION1922 family business continues to play an amazing game with destiny, always in correlation with the country’s economic and social history. From Theologia’s carpets illegally brought to Greece, until nowadays, we are proud of making this woman’s dream come true, having offered to more than 50,000 customers the finest pieces of Eastern art, the most special authentic carpets and kilims.
