Neo Con at the Chicago Merchandise Mart has descended upon us, and yesterday I participated in a panel discussion entitled “How to Use the Media to Build Your Brand” as one of Neo Con’s various events. This presentation took place at the Atelier Lapchi showroom, which I have mentioned previously on MG. It truly is one of my favorite showrooms in all of the Mart. I have used Lapchi carpets throughout the homes of many clients. Not only do they have unbelievable carpets and a phenomenal and knowledgeable staff, but also all carpets are made in a sustainable and ecologically friendly process!
All carpets are woven entirely by hand, a process that inherently eliminates toxic byproducts of factory manufacturing. All wool used is shorn from ethically treated sheep, mild soap is used in washing, chemicals are avoided, dyes are eco-friendly, and bulk shipping minimizes transportation resources. Additionally, Lapchi works with the RugMark Foundation to end illegal child labor in the hand-made carpet industry and to offer education opportunities to children in Southeast Asia. Since its inception, RugMark has rescued over 3000 children from the illegal underage workforce. (Shown above: Satori shown in Range Brown, from the Floral collection)
Lapchi is particularly known for its customization process. Lapchi was established in 2001 as the first manufacturer of hand-woven carpets to organize their entire business around the creation of made-to-order, custom carpets. (Shown above: Meadow in Goldenrod, from the Modernist collection)
Offering a range of colors, patterns and designs, the Lapchi carpet collection has styles that include: floral, contemporary, transitional, mid-century, tribal, Asian-inspired, classic formal, and modernist. There is something for everyone at Lapchi!
Here are a few of my many favorites from the Lapchi carpet collection.
