Tufenkian 地毯之美
Tufenkian 地毯之美已碰觸到世界的每個角落。源自尼泊爾地區的羊毛產地,以最珍貴的資源加上精巧匠工的傳統手工編織過程,搭配著一群最頂尖的設計師團隊;如Barbara Berry, Kevin Walz, Vincente Wolf, Mark Pollack…等。Tufenkian特意在地毯表面保留羊毛原本的油脂,因此更加容易保養及耐用;並以傳統染色手法創作出自然持久又繽紛的色彩。

Tufenkian 由James Tufenkian 在1986年創立。他立志要讓他所發現的大地更加美好;於是在他的事業模式下,他不斷地著力在使工作者及他們的社區有更豐富的資源。不僅只在環境上的維護,甚至是人性化的工作管理,讓大家有長期的健康保障。他們在尼泊爾投下大筆資金並成立一個非營利組織-Tufenkian基金會,專注於運用傳統手法來製作地毯。同時注入環保概念,使用創新的水源回流染色系統,竭力保育尼泊爾的自然資源。

Tufenkian 非常強調並珍惜純手工地毯的細緻及技巧,並堅持只使用最珍貴的材質-羊毛、細麻、純絲﹍等來編織。每一張地毯都是用最傳統原始的處理手法完成的。在持續成長的多樣化設計裡,Tufenkian同時也繼續研發產品的獨特性和創造力。確實地,每件精心織作的地毯都像是由人手的大洋中誕生的創作一般;將西藏人獨特的精神,幻化在交織的層次中。

The world of Tufenkian reaches across continents and encompasses multiple enterprises based on a singular mission. To create exquisite things that enrich the lives of those who experience them as well as those who create them.

At Tufenkian, James Tufenkian's mandate to "leave the places we touch a little better than we found them" has always been at the core of everything. Their traditional, human-powered processes (which include carding, spinning, and shearing by hand and transporting materials by yak) are just one example of our dedication to minimizing Tufenkian’s impact on the environment, which began long before “going green” was the suggested or required thing to do. Over the years, Tufenkian has taken exceptional steps to preserve and improve the environmental conditions in our workplaces and in the communities that host them.

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 from time beyond memory in the service of contemporary design. The glowing variations inherent in natural materials and the human touch are celebrated by Tufenkian in every stage of the process, the result of a commitment to promote individuality and inspiration in all of its production. Truly, each carpet is unique unto itself, created over the course of a journey through a sea of human hands that weave it into existence.

Though the process outlined below focuses on Tibetan carpets, most of the steps and techniques are also used to create Tufenkian's Armenian rugs as well.
