Lapchi rugs employ patterns derived from centuries of art, design and culture to create handwoven works of enduring beauty. It uses sustainable processes which respect the materials and honour the lives of the people who make them. Lapchi was one of the pioneering rug companies to stabilise rug production in Nepal in the early 2000s, by creating the infrastructure for predictable results with custom colours and sizes, as well as establishing a more consistent quality across production.


Reimagining heritage Storytelling in rugs

‘Rugs are now being used as a canvas for expressing various opinions and as an instrument for various voices. High-end contemporary rugs are being designed using layering where elements from various different genres and movements can come together to convey a beautiful original piece of art. Our collection Impasto is an ode to this tradition of layering one genre onto another.’


Tissage has dedicated four generations to the craft of rug making and it continues to evolve its direction and branding story. Tissage has always had a sophisticated, elevated aesthetic and that style will remain a core part of the company’s ethos as it takes its legacy into the next chapter. At COVER Connect Tissage will be showing of the Impasto collection as well as many other new designs.
