Marco de Vincenzo Employs Handloom Techniques to Create Colorful Rugs for cc-tapis
Colorful, metallic, and artisanal aren’t words often heard in the same sentence, but designer Marco de Vincenzo brings all three attributes to his new MDV rugs for cc-tapis. Born in Sicily, Vincenzo left at age 18 to study fashion in Rome, and at 21 was hired by Fendi, where he is now head designer of leather goods. (He also launched his own label in 2009.) For this collaboration, Vincenzo translated Lurex textiles into a shimmering striped rug, the metallic yarn being new material for the brand’s artisans, who usually work with Tibetan wool. A handloom technique, native to India, was chosen instead of the more common hand knotting. The rug is available in three sizes up to 79 by 118 inches, plus a runner extending that same length.
