A RUG TO RIDE

Further to this, when architect Rick Potestio co-designed the Atelier Lapchi showroom space he had an idea. Potestio, a board member of BTA, the Bicycle Transportation Alliance of Oregon, was inspired to design a bicycle rug. The projected rug will be auctioned to raise money for the BTA who promote cycle safety. It will be woven as a 5’x7′, all wool, 100-knot quality area rug, by Lapchi.
