About us

TTW Editions was started by Tiernan Alexander and Tim Eads of Tuft the World and is made for those who appreciate bespoke designs that transend the ordinary. 

Since March 2023, Tuft the World has been exploring the seemingly endless possibilities of our new large-scale CNC tufting machine. In addition to collaborating with artists and designers to bring custom rugs to life through TTW Editions, we are excited to be creating playful rugs inspired by food through another new venture, The Food and Rug Administration

Tuft the World was first established in 2018 by Tiernan Alexander and Tim Eads, Texas-born artists and business owners living and working in West Philadelphia. The company was founded to provide tufters with a one-stop shop for the high-quality tools, materials, and instruction needed to make their own tufting projects. Tiernan and Tim’s collective experience as crafters and educators, as well as their uniquely creative approach to art and life, inspire their mission to make the craft of tufting accessible to a broad audience, while staying true to their values of equity and sustainability.

We believe in people, community, and the health of our planet over profit. We’re committed to building a workplace ecosystem where our team can thrive, and in supporting and connecting a larger community of makers. We believe that creative thinking is the seed of growth, and that everyone is innately creative. It’s our hope that tufting might awaken that spirit in both the most confident artist, and the person who never thought they could make anything. If you're interested in learning to tuft, it's easy to learn! Give it a go on your own, or join us at an upcoming workshop at our new education space in the Bok Building, located in South Philadelphia.
