Khajag Krikorian (Managing Director) has left his mark in many of the world’s most luxurious hotels. From humble beginnings as a bag designer in his own little shop in the narrow neighborhoods of Bourj Hammoud, Lebanon, his breakthrough in hospitality designs came along in the early 2000s. From the remaining few artisans of the region, Khajag still strives for new concepts and pushing the standards with every new project.
Khajag’s designs are not complete without the intervention of his wife Hasmig Boyadjian Krikorian (Project Manager). She is the captain behind the production power house underneath the managerial and design offices. Now advocating for female artisans within the region, and setting an example for women in a male-dominated industry, her work started at a small atelier in the extra bedroom of their house. With only 2 Singer sewing machines and a shiny white table for assembly, she made a name for herself in the once booming local artisanal market.
