Tufenkian Artisan Carpets was founded in 1986 by entrepreneur James Tufenkian in order to create beautiful and superbly crafted handmade rugs that not only enhance an interior environment, they also enrich the lives and communities of the artisans who make the rugs. This same philosophy drives all Tufenkian ventures, from category defining handmade carpets, to luxurious hotels, to the finest epicurean products and is also clearly manifested in the extensive humanitarian and environmental work of the Tufenkian Foundation. Tufenkian not only diligently ensures that no child labor is ever used to produce any product bearing the Tufenkian name, but also uses the proceeds from its businesses to ensure that its craftspeople are cared for, and their communities thrive. By entering redeveloping nations and providing communities employment, housing, potable drinking water, schools, medical facilities, cultural preservation initiatives, and environmental rehabilitation, Tufenkian outstrips international humanitarian standards. This is all part of fulfilling James Tufenkian’s founding mandate that we “leave the places we touch a little better than we found them”
