Design firm Floorplan has launched Rug Your City , a Kickstarter project that wants to create handmade rugs inspired by modern cities. Inspired by classic Persian and Turkish storytelling rugs, Rug Your City seeks $12,000 to prototype a New York-inspired pilot collection that will include five pieces designed by two graphic designers, an architectural firm, an environmental consultant and a Brooklyn-based artist team. The designs will either be hand-woven (flat-weave) or hand-knotted (plush) and take four to nine months to produce. The handmade rugs would be created by skilled artisans from Indian, Pakistan, and/or Turkey. + Rug Your City Kickstarter The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
