I started this company to make rugs for people to love.

For some it is enough for a rug to just lie on the floor and look great. My aim was to transcend superficial attractiveness and to touch people more deeply than with only color and design. I believe that in a world of mass-produced and mechanically flawless products, what people really want to live with are a few great things that speak to them through their exquisite materials, and the subtle variations created by the human hand. Tufenkian Carpets stand alongside the best of those, but promise much more.

We promise a deeper connection that comes from appreciation of the extreme levels of hand craftsmanship invested in our products, and the Tufenkian values and practices that underlie their creation.

Simple and timeless: two words that define Tufenkian carpets. Our Design Catalog Collections show how we apply those ideas to every carpet we produce. Each piece honors ancient artisan traditions, and is made from the most extraordinary materials. All of the carpets in our Design Catalog are stocked in a full range of standard sizes, and can be produced in custom sizes and color ways to meet the needs of any project.
