“The Art of Carpet Weaving in the Land of Armenia is Truly Ancient”, James Tufenkian, founder of Tufenkian Artisan Carpets.
Tufenkian Carpets Armenia was founded in 1994 . People remember it as "dark and cold years". It seemed impossible to open a new factory in a newly independent, war-torn country. Yet this company started making rugs to share love and care with everyone. Our carpets are hand-knotted. That is simply the best way to make a carpet. Not surprisingly it is also the hardest, and by far the most time consuming one. Each piece honors ancient artisan traditions, and is crafted from the most extraordinary materials.
