Fordite is a collection of 3 rugs designed for cc-tapis and presented during the 2019 Milan Design Week. It derives its name from a surprising by-product of the Detroit automotive industry: layers of enamel car paint, that have built up and hardened over time, are baked and polished, until the result resembles agate. Directly inspired by this rock-hard mineral, a similar approach to sustainability was integrated in the creation of these rugs. The materials (Himalayan wool, pure silk and aloe) used were sourced from the excess left over from cc-tapis’s regular production process. The rugs maintain the same layered appearance as fordite, recreated with recycled wool.

The Maker / 

CC-Tapis

Born in France, designed in Milan, and produced in Nepal, cc-tapis offers beautiful hand-crafted rugs from some of the world’s leading artists and designers. Each cc-tapis rug tells a story of tradition, quality and contemporary design. At the centre of these stories is a traditional production process where a group of Tibetan artisans work by hand, refining natural materials, passing down artisanal know-how from generation to generation.

The Designer / 

Patricia Urquiola

Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo, Spain in 1961 and studied architecture and design at the Madrid Polytechnic. In 2001 she opened her own studio with focus on architecture, design and installation projects. She is one of the world's most influential creatives and has collaborated with CC-Tapis to design unique and contemporary handmade rugs.
