American Street Showroom

Collected. Curated. Created.

Rug Pop-Up

As part of Design Philadelphia 2014, American Street Showroom was proud to host "Tradition and Trend: Modern Carpet Designs from Ancient Lands". Still currently on display are the rugs of the ldiz family, third-generation master carpet makers. From the time these vintage rugs are brought into their shop to the time they are turned into these masterfully made modern compositions, the rugs have gone through a 26 step process that includes everything from cleaning and over-dying to shearing and hand stitching.
