Tianjin Sunton International Trading Company located in the age-old carpet place of Tianjin, which was one of the first cities in China for making and exporting carpets, has actually been in the carpet business for the past 30 years starting from traditional Chinese hand-woven carpets, and later on tufting rugs. The favourable geographical and historical factors accounts for the development of the Sunton carpet industry. The recent competition from the same trade also provided a further incentive to the Sunton carpet industry and spurred Sunton to make rapid improvement as far as craftsmanship, designs, colours and materials were concerned.
Today the Sunton carpet industry advances in great strides. Carpets of different varieties, not only hand-woven or kilimed but also tufted either by hand or passing machine, made of silk, wool, cotton, acrylic, polyester and their combinations, all come into production.
