Accessorize Your Home with Tufenkian Area Rugs & Carpets

Tufenkian rugs exude superior craftsmanship and artistry. They’re made from premium wool produced by Tibetan highland sheep and Great Caucasus Mountain sheep. The fiber is sometimes combined with top-quality silk for fresh rug and carpet variations. For a complete work of art with vibrant hues, artisans use high-grade Swiss metal-complex dyes.

Skilled artisans from Nepal and Armenia hand-tie each knot of the luxury area rugs. This delicate process guarantees the durability and uniqueness of James Tufenkian’s artisan rugs. The natural fibers from Tibetan and Great Caucasus Mountain sheep, enhanced with exceptional handcrafting skills, ensure that each Tufenkian rug possesses distinct qualities.

The superior wool from Tibetan highland sheep and Great Caucasus Mountain sheep ensure a durable product that will last generations when given the right care. The high lanolin content from the Tibetan sheep’s wool helps Tufenkian carpets maintain their soil and stain-resistance.

Tufenkian Rug Materials & Weaving Techniques

Tufenkian carpets and area rugs are made of either wool or silk. The wool used by Tufenkian is sourced from the sheep populations in Tibet, Iran, and Armenia. The wool is unscoured and keeps its natural lanolin intact, rendering the finished carpets durable and unique.

All Tufenkian rugs and carpets are hand-knotted. They use hand-carded and hand-spun yarns to start the production, and the yarn is dyed by hand. Even if Tufenkian rug designs are created digitally, the rest of the rug production process—from washing, shearing, and detailing—are all done by hand.

Colors & Patterns of Handmade Tufenkian Rugs

Tufenkian carpets and area rugs combine traditional weaving techniques with contemporary designs. Their patterns and colors are inspired by nature, while their bolder designs have geometrical motifs and elements of abstract expressionism.

Other carpets have subtle designs that utilize traditional patterns. These understated rugs and carpets are the perfect blend of the traditional and contemporary. Tufenkian rugs use the bold colors found in Asian textiles and contemporary sensibilities to create their rug collections.

Caring for & Cleaning Your Tufenkian Area Rugs

Here are a few ways to take care of your valuable rug:

  • Handwashing your Tufenkian Rugs every three to six years is advisable, depending on the amount of foot traffic it encounters. Do not steam clean these rugs nor use strong detergents as the chemicals used in these methods can damage or discolor the textile.
  • Use carpet pads to cushion foot traffic. These pads extend the lifespan of rugs, prevent slippage, and protect hardwood floors from possible spills.
  • Vacuum your rugs weekly to prevent dirt buildup that can damage carpet fibers. Avoid using vacuuming fringes when using beater bar-style vacuums. Using suction-only vacuums lessens the possibility of fringe damage
  • Clean your rugs and carpets before storing them. Dirty rugs are more susceptible to discoloration and infestation if not cleaned properly before storage.
  • Inspect and vacuum your rugs regularly to prevent pest infestations. Always check your carpets in storage as pests prefer dark and quiet areas.

Decorating with Tufenkian Area Rugs & Carpets

If you’re planning on using Tufenkian rugs to decorate your home, here are a few ideas that you can follow:

  • Put durable patterned rugs in high-traffic areas like hallways and foyers.
  • Use long, rectangular area rugs, such as the Tufenkian Untitled Summit White rugs, to decorate bathrooms or kitchens and give it a more organized feel.
  • Bold-colored rugs can be the focal point of a room, with each piece of furniture complementing it.
  • Light-colored rugs make rooms more spacious, while deeper colors create a cozier atmosphere.
  • Use smaller area and scatter rugs for tight spaces like balconies, bedside tables and nooks, and corners.

Frequently Asked Questions about Tufenkian Rugs

Where are Tufenkian rugs made?

Most of our Tufenkian rugs are made from Tibetan Highland virgin wool. These rugs are hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-knotted in Nepal. Other Tufenkian area rugs are also made in Armenia and use the wool of Armenian Vochkdar sheep. These sheep are carefully raised in order to achieve the luscious Mahnoom material used in Armenian rugs.

Does Tufenkian use vegetable dyes?

Vegetable dyes are only used on Yak-Soo rugs. Other Tufenkian rugs are dyed by hand using pigments created using a modern Swiss process. This method uses chromium metal, a naturally occurring element. The vibrant dyes made from this process will never run or fade, while also giving the wool more character.

Can I use Scotchgard on my carpet?

While using Scotchgard or any other soil-retardant on carpets is common, these are not needed on Tufenkian rugs and carpets. Tufenkian area rugs are naturally stain resistant and require less maintenance than other luxury rugs and carpets. The high lanolin content found in the Tibetan sheep wool adds to the soil-resistant properties of the rugs.
