Known for producing contemporary handmade rugs in Nepal, CC-Tapis has once again revealed exciting novelties at Maison et Objet Paris, including today’s topic of discussion the Parvata Limited Edition. Recently, the brand has expanded its textile landscape by presenting new pieces and existing collections. They have also collaborated with some of the world’s most renowned designers that always pay tremendous focus on quality and craftsmanship, and that was the case with Jean-Marie Massaud who was responsible for the design of the Parvata rug.
A homage to the country it was created in, the name “Parvata” is the Nepali word for mountain and is produced by cc-tapis in the Kathmandu valley at the base of the Himalayas. A rug born to enrich the lives of the craftsmen that created it and the future of Nepal. This hand-knotted rug was completed using materials such as cotton weave, Himalayan wool, bamboo silk and linen borders.
“Nepalese and Tibetan craftsmen, masters of the art of hand-knotted rugs, have translated our concept in their own traditional aesthetic-language to convey the natural wonders of Himalayan rock formations. Parvata: a segment of the Himalayas.” – Jean-Marie Massaud
This extraordinary limited edition piece is the first of six pieces and it was presented at the Silvera Bac Boutique where all the proceeds went to the CC-foreducation, an initiative that seeks to provide a complete education to school and university students in Nepal.
