Each cc-tapis rug has a deep connection to the people who made it: embracing artisanal production techniques means embracing the artisans that create our rugs. 

cc-tapis produces handmade rugs, using techniques from all over the world: Hand-knotted, hand-loom and hand-tufted. Each technique carries with it it’s inherent cultural identity, enriching the company and the distinctiveness of the product. Making a rug takes time, expertise and meticulous attention to detail, intertwining the skills of different artisans who come together to create a unique piece of design.

Combining manual skills, culture and intellect, artisans transfer the value of traditional craftsmanship into contemporary design, helping combine and develop innovative ideas with hand-made techniques

Acting as a bridge between tradition and innovation,cc-tapis establishes an emotional bond between artisans and the people who bring them into interior spaces.


All materials are dyed by hand in the cc-tapis ateliers. Each material reacts to color differently, a characteristic which is explored in monochromatic rugs such as the Casellario Monocromo >> .

Natural materials absorb color uniquely creating soft tonal differences, discover our materials here >>
Each material is dyed specifically for the production of each rug, by our master of color.

The colors are based on the ARS color system and can be matched to other systems such as Pantone or RAL, cc-tapis can even match material or textile samples. No stock of dyed yarns is kept so it is advised to order rugs with the same colors destined for the same space at the same time.


Yarns are dyed by hand, being fully immersed in the color-bath. Materials take the color a uniform way, depending on the fiber, with some materials adhering to the dye better than others.

A technique used to create a less uniform color, a color rich in texture and tone. To achieve this effect, the yarn is tied into knots and then immersed in the color baths. Due to the knots parts of the wool do not take the color 100% creating soft and delicate tones in the rugs pile. This effects of this technique can be seen in the Cinquecento collection by Studio Klass >>  


The Tiger-dye dying process is an antique Tibetan method for dying Himalayan wool, which can be seen in the Venus Power Collection by Patricia Urquiola >>. The technique was developed by Tibetans making traditional Tiger Motifs, hence the name.

This technique is more sustainable than other dyeing techniques as only 1 hank of yarn is dyed to create different tones of the same color, using much less water. When the wool is placed in the color bath, it is only partially submersed. The submersed wool absorbs the color which delicately spreads up the fiber. This means that only some segments of the yarn are completely dyed, whilst the rest of the material picks-up softer tones, with some parts hardly receiving any color at all.
