INTRODUCING THE MEMENTO COLLECTION BY YABU PUSHELBERG
cc-tapis and the North American design studio Yabu Pushelberg unveil memories through artisanal craftsmanship presenting the new Memento Collection. A collection of seven hand-knotted rugs produced by Tibetan artisans in the cc-tapis Atelier in Nepal.
Exploring the creative approach of both brands, Memento creates a tapestry of personal narratives within each rug, transcribing Yabu Pushelberg’s memories and treasured moments with Himalayan wool. cc-tapis artisans combine both dyed and undyed materials in extremely delicate gradients, finished by hand to evoke the soft and undefined nostalgic moments which accumulate together to form the collection.
A uniquely individual series of hand-knotted rugs, enhanced by their exacting knowledge of technique and flawless expertise. Memento aims to inspire through memory, while conjuring up new ones, yet to come.
Yabu Pushelberg designs places and products: immersive environments, compelling destinations, and considered goods. George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg founded the studio in 1980 with an emphasis on interior design and have since evolved into creative directors addressing multiple layers of human experience.
With offices in New York and Toronto and a team of more than a hundred creatives and professionals, the studio specializes in sensibilities spanning strategy, interior, product, lighting, textiles, and styling with a focus that goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make people feel.
