The Story of Kalogridis International
George Kalogridis began his career at a Dallas-based rug company in 1976. During these early years, he began researching and developing his own rug-making techniques. Then, in 1979, he founded Kalogridis International and opened up a studio on McKinney Avenue. Kalogridis’ first independent project was a bulkhead tapestry for Clorox Co.’s jet which he constructed from yarn dyed in a large, stainless-steel spaghetti pot atop his kitchen stove.
Since that time, Kalogridis International has grown into a prestigious team of craftsmen, scientists and technicians. Today, the company is housed in a state-of-the-art, 130,000-square-foot facility in Dallas, Texas, that spans 6.5 acres of land. Kalogridis international is honored to count royal families, heads of state, and dignitaries from around the world among its many esteemed clients.
