A FREE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM WITH A FOCUS ON THE ANALOG

We stand committed to our mission to empower the next generation of Armenian designers and artisans–raising the quality of locally produced goods while making them globally competitive.

WHAT IS TUMO STUDIOS?

TUMO Studios is a free educational program for university-aged students and young professionals with a passion for craftsmanship and design. We program ateliers, “educational workshops,” in fashion, jewelry, embroidery, pottery, printing, product design and the culinary arts.

Inspired by Armenia’s rich artisanal heritage, TUMO Studios combines local know-how with contemporary methods and design trends.

DESIGNED AND HAND MADE AT TUMO STUDIOS

Our aim is to cultivate a new generation of Armenian designers and artisans who raise the quality of locally produced goods and make them competitive, globally.

We connect local students and young professionals with international designers through ateliers where they create unique and innovative products.

INVESTING IN THE FUTURE OF ARMENIAN DESIGN AND ARTISANSHIP

A purchase from TUMO Studios is a contribution to the next generation of Armenian designers and artisans. By selling student-made products on a global platform and directing proceeds towards expanding our educational program, we pave the way for more students to develop design skills and explore their creative potential.

A HISTORIC TOWNHOUSE IN THE HEART OF YEREVAN

TUMO Studios is located in a historic townhouse in the heart of Yerevan. Every piece in the collection begins its story in our loft space built at the turn of the 20th century.

Designed by Architect Vasili Mirzoyan, the building is as much of an inspiration as it is our home.

OUR SPONSORS

The John and Hasmik Mgrdichian Foundation (JHM) has been a sponsor of TUMO Studios since its inception in 2017. It has worked closely with the TUMO Studios team to build a strong foundation in contemporary Armenian design.
