Joe Carini is an artist, designer, experimenter, carpet maker and collector, and a native of Brooklyn, NY. He studied antique rugs and researched renewable materials in Nepal and Tibet for fifteen years before launching Carini Lang. CL is one of the last rug makers in the world using Tibetan hand-knotting techniques and creating dyes from scratch. Ancient rugs told stories, sparked conversations, conjured rhythms and engaged emotions. By preserving traditional processes and designing in a variety of styles (explore here) Joe hopes to bring some of this magic into the contemporary world.
