TAI PING – The choice of luxury
Tai Ping reflects on a legacy of uncompromising craftsmanship, service, and design – and looks ahead as it defines China’s emerging luxury market 2012 – Tai Ping Carpets was founded in Hong Kong 50 years ago to preserve China’s venerable craft of hand-made rugs. Today, custom rugs and carpets are designed in New York and Paris ateliers and manufactured in our wholly owned factories. Gracing the world’s most celebrated hotels, jets, yachts, private offices and homes, couture custom carpets, both hand-made and machine woven, are of the highest possible quality.
Tai Ping has been recognised as the luxury brand of choice for a discerning global clientele and with success based on respect for the company’s storied past, technical innovation, sophisticated level of design, service and quality control.
Tai Ping’s showrooms – on four continents globally and in cities such as New York, Paris and Hong Kong – are captivating storehouses of design inspiration and innovation. With samples ranging from the elegant and understated (e.g. monochromatic hand-tufted silks) to cutting-edge (e.g. a riotous paisley in chartreuse silk and silver lurex) and textures spanning the softest silks to raw organics, Tai Ping’s offerings illustrate both the tradition from which Tai Ping emerged and the innovation that has kept it vibrant.
Tai Ping’s hand-made carpets are a highlight of its product offering. The hand-tufting process allows for total freedom of expression, with endless variations in pattern, colour, texture, and shape. Using only the best materials – including silk, linen, wool, cashmere, and jute – Tai Ping is especially well known for innovations in fibre combinations. Examples include a delicate blend of silk and linen, a luxurious texture that only softens with wear, and an unconventional juxtaposition of sisal and silk. Hand-carving – a process by which rugs are literally sculpted by hand to create one-of-a-kind patterns and texture – raises the bar on customisation yet again. Armed with tools and techniques passed between generations of artisans, Tai Ping handcrafts each rug to the exact specifications of designers and clients.
