Tuftex

The best things in life are built to last. They’re the things that, upon first glance, you know were lovingly touched by working hands. They were given life to meet a real need and designed with thought and intention, and even when they’re new, there’s something about them that brings ideas of heritage, legacy and story to mind. Yes, we sell beautiful flooring, but we don’t find that very interesting. We much prefer to craft products designed with the ideals of our customers in mind and then match them to their perfect home. We sell craftsmanship and timeless design principles. We sell simplicity and quality, purpose, refinement and comfort. We sell hand-scraped wood grain, custom-dyed fibers and natural beauty that doesn’t fade. We know that your flooring is a decision you only want to make once. That’s why we work with trained artisans who love quality, durability and detail as much as you do. You can trust them, their work and your instincts. We’ll happily back all three. We want you to love your floor and life that happens on it every day.
