Washington, DC – Tamarian Carpets recently accepted a gracious invitation by the government of Nepal to attend a cultural celebration at the residence of the Nepali Ambassador in Washington, DC. In attendance were Tamarian founder Steve Cibor and his wife Jennifer as well as Kevin Fusting, owner of Galleria Rugs, one of DC’s premier carpet showrooms and a long time supporter and top client of Tamarian. The event was a chance to speak to attendees about the strong bond Tamarian shares with the country of Nepal; their culture, resources, and most importantly, their people. Topics discussed included Tamarian’s recent investments in improved production infrastructure and continued partnership with TLC (Tibetan Labor Certification), a third-party company that monitors weaving in Nepal.
“We also had a chance to meet and spend time with members of the local Nepali community in the DC area”, remarked Fusting. “This was my favorite part of the day, learning more about the people and culture behind this incredible hand-made work.”
