Several sewing machines from the factory have been preserved and are still in working order. Samvel, a former worker in a sewing shop, works for them at home and even does a small print run of knitwear.
During the years of operation of the factory, the range of products produced was about 20 items of clothing, 1000-2000 items of clothing for children, women and men were produced per day.
Although the factory had three directors during its history, but with the greatest trepidation, the workers remember the name of Kirov Arakelyan, who worked at the factory until the end of his life.
During the years of his leadership, the factory expanded remarkably: during the perestroika period and the subsequent independence of Armenia, new buildings were built thanks to his efforts. He managed to conclude contracts with foreign companies. The factory produced products with Italian and Arabic labels.
In the new Carifactory, we plan to organize a space for a small exhibition on the history of the factory, where the most interesting artifacts from the past will be presented: equipment and clothing, archival photos, accounting records and more.
Carifactory has a rich history and many warm memories that are still alive in the hearts of Dilijan residents. We want to preserve all this and transmit it to the new generations.
