The gorgeous colors of Tufenkian Carpets are one reason to fall in love with the woven masterpieces. The exquisite craftsmanship and beautiful patterns are added reasons to cherish them. Another attraction is the Tufenkian mission, which appeals to the greater good: To create great things that enrich the lives of those who make them and their communities.
In 1986, James Tufenkian revolutionized the handmade carpet industry in Tibet and Nepal by bringing back the tradition of hand weaving. In 1993, Mr. Tufenkian rejuvenated Armenia’s inactive weaving craft by restoring the age old tradition to a nation recovering from economic disaster.
The attention to expert quality is evident in every yarn and at every level of their business. From shearing the sheep to washing the wool, to dyeing and spinning, to the final weave, artisans infuse their creations with love, care and individuality. The Tufenkian businesses are run with sustainability as the highest priority, for the earth and for individuals.
