cc-tapis’s new collection Archer, designed by Iranian artist Taher Asad-Bakhtiari, is all about arrows and their power

Pardis, Taher Asad-Bakhtiari for cc-tapis

cc-tapis’s new collection Archer is designed by Iranian artist Taher Asad-Bakhtiari and consists solely of runners. The seven designs stem from Asad-Bakhtiari’s fascination with arrows and their power; his zodiac sign is the Archer. ‘I’m a Saggitarius and to me, the arrow stands for the values or energies—think peace, or success, or love—that we throw into our lives. The arrows are symbols of how we unleash these energies, watch them gain momentum and experience where they end up pointing,’ he says. ‘From the seven days of creation to the seven seas, from the seven colours of the rainbow to the seven chakras, the number seven is an auspicious one in the global imagination.’

cc-tapis sees the collection being used for corridors, staircases or narrow spaces or placed freely in an open interior. The rugs are hand-knotted in Nepal in Himalayan wool, silk, lurex and mohair.
