Since 1986, James Tufenkian has made it his mission to share his Armenian heritage and contribute to the development of Armenian communities with the world by crafting and importing a luxury line of handmade traditional Tibetan rugs. Tufenkian’s dedication to rug artistry is equally matched with his humanitarian efforts. A large amount of Armenians in his homeland, as well as master weavers in Nepal, are employed to carry on the traditional techniques of creating artisan rugs. Not only are these works of art internationally admired for their inspired aesthetics and timeless designs, but are also hand-woven and hand-knotted with only natural fibers, so no manufacturing energy or oil is required. Cyrus Rugs shares this passion for rug artistry with James Tufenkian and proudly sells these custom traditional rugs in Minneapolis so you can make a part of James’ family history part of your family history.
