“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.
