R & Company has collaborated with Amini, a carpet company based in Italy, to produce unique and limited edition rugs designed by a curated selection of artists. The project breaks from the long-standing tradition of artists making carpets by printing a preexisting painting, drawing, or photograph on a rug. Instead, each artist has created a unique design that considers the form, material and process while simultaneously reflecting their individual styles. The carpets are all special editions produced at leading weaving factories in Nepal and India.
