Edmon Vardanyan is a 17 year old young man in Vardenis who started to make decorative wheat straw items about a year ago.  He taught himself how to do it, and until now, has not thought of selling it. He is a natural talent.  Few people know that wheat straw design is an old Armenian tradition, so we hope that people visiting the Vardenis Golden Wheat Festival will be able to learn more about it and pick up a great souvenir!
