Cultivate Collection, the first collection of flatweave rugs
cc-tapis is proud to present Cultivate by Yuri Himuro, a new collection of flatweave rugs and the first rugs by cc-tapis to utilize this special weaving technique. A collection where you can become the designer: cut, create and customize the rug yourself.
Himuro is an expert in weaving and has become famous for her Snip Snap textiles, a clever and playful collection that utilizes a special jacquard weaving technique invented by the designer which contains a double layer. The user is encouraged to cut away the top layer to discover what lies beneath.
cc-tapis and Himuro translated this innovative approach to create a rug collection where the user can cut and customize the rug, creating their own unique artwork. Himuro poetically says of her work “cutting becomes a process of creation, rather than destruction”.
