Tamarian Announces Partnership With Label STEP

In a recent company memo sent by Tamarian to their dealer base, Principal Ryan Higgins celebrated the company’s decision to partner with Label STEP as real evidence that Tamarian “cares about the future.” Since taking sole ownership of one of the world’s leading importers of Tibetan rugs, Higgins has restated Tamarian’s Mission Statement that is in concert with STEP’s commitment to eliminating child labor, empowering weavers and workers, and fostering an environmentally sound production. Reassuring An Established Fanbase Tamarian has been a leading importer in the U.S. for decades and has always strived to set a high mark for both social and environmental responsible practices in rug production. The opening of their premier weaving facility in Kathmandu a few years ago launched one of the most modern weaving operations to-date; boasting large, open, well-lit working and living spaces that incorporate “green” architectural elements such as roofing that accentuates natural light and improves ventilation. The dealers, designers, and end-users that have worked with Tamarian over the years know that the high-end quality of their rugs come from a production of equally high standards. Tamarian’s Marketing Director Ned Baker states, “We are often celebrated for giving client’s a ‘great experience’ along with an amazing rug, which is only possible because we have clear lines of communication with our manufacturers and partners with good information flowing back/forth. This is not possible with a production that exploits people and resources. Our partnership with Label STEP is a logical evolution to assure we are genuine in our commitments.” Label STEP’s managing Director Reto Aschwanded agrees, ““We are excited about the partnership with Tamarian and proud to welcome one of the leading Tibetan rug brands as a new member. We believe it will not only benefit Tamarian’s weavers and artisans but will strengthen the sustainability of Nepal’s handmade carpet industry.”...

Over the past 47 years, a discerning clientele has come to expect nothing less than the most innovative designs from the company, which has grown to become one of the country’s largest rug manufacturers, and the stunning new introductions being made at the upcoming Las Vegas Market are sure to please. The Feizy Rugs showroom, located in Suite C-180, will offer visitors a chance to experience more than 60 new designs created for the summer market.   Featuring a continued focus on trends such as Opulence, Tech Play, Natural Wonders, Mankind, and Inner Peace, coordinated pieces across constructions and price points will give visitors the most fashion-forward looks. With top-notch service and impressive new collections and merchandising, a visit to the Feizy showroom is an absolute must. For clients unable to attend market or wishing to shop from a distance, all of their new pieces have been filmed. The new Anica Collection is expertly hand-tufted in geometric patterns with both loop and cut pile to reveal the nuanced variation of the space dyed yarns. A variety of warm and cool neutrals with accents of pale blue and an ever-present, versatile cream create effortless style for any home. Explore beautiful home design with Anica’s artisanal complexity. From the elements of nature to the geometry of a city scape with a splash of mid-century, our new Atwell Collection, is a contemporary exploration of tonality and texture. Silvery aquas and greens accent a medley of pearlescent gray, alabaster, and ivory in patterns that both elevate and invite. Each design is exquisitely distressed with washes of layered color to create a dreamlike backdrop for any decor. Lose yourself in Atwell’s ethereal modern landscape. Hand-knotted in 100% wool, the Beall Collection is an interpretation of the Arts and Crafts movement from the late 19th to the early 20th centuries.

Feizy adds three new designs and colorations to one of its best-selling groupings, the Berkeley Collection. The organic styling of Berkeley is the perfect way to create a setting of casual comfort. Using a distinctive handwoven technique, Berkeley’s inherent designs are created by texture from 100% natural wool. Available in various earth tones, these eco-friendly rugs are adaptable, durable and robust, making Berkeley an ideal addition to busy lifestyles and virtually all design spaces. Imagine a lustrous, softly defined geometric relief rising above a heathered backdrop...
