Tuft City was founded in 2020 by Brisbane artist/muralist Benjamin Reeve.

With a degree in Visual Arts and a Masters in Creative Advertising, Benjamin was set to complete his Doctorate as the world started closing its doors.

No longer able to continue his research, teach or paint outdoors, Benjamin discovered a 'tufting' video on TikTok and his love of fibre arts, an area first discovered as a child growing up in Papua New Guinea, was rekindled.

Compelled to learn everything he could about rug-making, Benjamin set to work gathering all the supplies and tools needed and now works hand-in-hand with factories and suppliers promoting rug-making and ensuring accessibility for all Australian creatives.
