Tufenkian Tibetan Collection:
The art of making carpets by hand using the finest materials is cherished and nurtured by Tufenkian. Each carpet is carefully crafted, using methods and techniques that are virtually unchanged over time to create beautiful contemporary design. Tibetan sheep produce lustrous, resilient wool that is considered the finest in the world for rug production. In order to preserve the natural character of its fibers, Tufenkian wool is never bleached or scoured. Each carpet is unique unto itself. Using simple, foot-powered wooden wheels, the wool is spun into yarn. This process creates many of the beautiful imperfections found in Tufenkian carpets. There are usually four to five weavers for a 9’ x 12’ rug, which is made up of 650,000 to 1.5 million knots and takes an astonishing 3,000 hours of human labor to complete.
