“We wanted to remove the veil between us and the makers,” say Formafantasma’s Simone Farresin and Andrea Trimarchi. “It’s the beginning of a dialogue, instead of merely a finished product.”
cc-tapis has since its beginnings united the vision of cutting-edge designers with the artistry of traditional Tibetan rug-makers in Nepal. To craft the rugs, artisans meticulously twist yarns of natural Himalayan wool knot by knot, creating a rectangle from which the final free-form shape of a cc-tapis rug is cut, leaving corners and sections that are to be sheared off as excess which are then recycled by cc-tapis — areas where rug-makers are at liberty to express their own messages beyond the design’s borders, knotting words of their choosing into these extraneous parts.
