Visioni, the new rugs designed by Patricia Urquiola for cc-tapis.
Visioni A and Visioni B, an unprecedented synthesis between an age-old technique and contemporary graphics.
“In any industry, people that work in a less industrial way, people that have a more artisanal way of thinking, are more open to innovation, a different kind of product, to reinvent. They are never scared to take risks,” says Urquiola.
The rugs have been produced solely by hand in the cc-tapis atelier in Nepal and combine an innovative blend of Himalayan wool and pure silk. A combination which gives depth, richness and a wonderful shine to a design that exalts ancient production techniques whilst adding a contemporary breath to them.
A strong respect for 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 Himalayan wool to the use of purified rainwater for the washing of the final products.
