The beautiful legend of Queen HASIS underlies the name of HASIS brand…
The name of the brand is borrowed from a beautiful legend, according to which the URARTIAN queen HASIS (7th century BC) gave birth to twelve sons delivering quadruplet boys three times. To share his happiness with his people king ARGISHTI II issued an edict according to which all the women who gave birth to multiplets were rewarded with twelve silver coins from the royal treasury.
The legend motivated, breathed meaning and essence to the brand, and gave birth to our motto:
HASIS – A Royal Gift of Love and Happiness!
