Tai Ping Carpets was founded in British Hong Kong in 1956 with the ambitious goals of developing industry in the post-war colony and providing employment to migrant workers fleeing political turmoil in China. The core value system instilled by its founders of operating ethically and responsibility have been a cornerstone of the company’s guiding principles ever since.
For over six decades, Tai Ping has designed and created beautifully-handcrafted products with a preference for natural, renewable fibres. Caring for people and respecting the environment have always gone hand in hand. Company-owned manufacturing facilities not only operate under rigorous sustainability standards, but they also offer a safe, enriching atmosphere for employees.
True compassion for the wellbeing of people extends beyond the workplace to include families, communities and the world. Tai Ping invests the same level of care in creating its bespoke, artisanal products as it does in managing natural resources and safeguarding its employees and associates. Finchatton has worked closely with Tai Ping carpets on a wide range of projects globally, including our latest show apartment at Twenty Grosvenor Square, Mayfair. We spoke with Juliana Polastri, Global Design and Brand Director at Tai Ping and gained an insight into the history of the Tai Ping brand and carpet design.
