The company was founded by Nelcya Chamszadeh and Fabrizio Cantoni in France who have been producing hand-knotted rugs in Nepal for over 20 years. In 2011 cc-tapis moved to Milan where the company is now based where a team of designers lead by Daniele Lora, art-director and partner, innovate through a new approach to traditional methods.

A strong respect for the materials and for the culture of this ancient craft is reflected in the company’s eco-friendly approach to every step of production, ranging from the hand spinning of the softest materials to the use of purified rainwater for the washing of the final products, making each one of cc-tapis rugs unique.

Far from mass production, cc-tapis aims to offer a tailored service to those who understand and enjoy a high-end product which contains the story of an ageless culture.

CC-FOR EDUCATION is a non-profit organization which was founded in May 2015 by Nelcya Chamszadeh and Fabrizio Cantoni with the mission to provide a complete education to the children of weavers in Nepal. Offering education in private schools from kindergarten all the way through to high-school graduation.
