LHD Tapis - Company profile
We co-create functional floor art for visually stunning interiors of commercial and residential spaces in Canada and abroad.
Working with Interior Designers and Architects we start with initial conceptualization, proceed to small scale concept renderings, through to larger scaled final artwork. Coordinating production of samples is followed by overseeing final production, shipment and installation of the finished custom carpeting.
The products are primarily handmade from natural fibers: wool, silk, linen, bamboo, viscose.... by skilled craftsmen and women in Nepal, Thailand, the Philippines and India.
