For over fifteen years, Carini Lang carpets have been designed in New York, woven in Nepal, and inspired by the world in between. Joseph Carini's carpet designs are thousands of miles in the making: from his studio, where a team of design assistants help him decide on patterns and sizes; to Nepal, where the carpets are hand-woven with wool, silk, cashmere, or mohair; then back to his showroom in Tribeca.

Three core principles are embodied in Carini Lang’s work: To make a beautiful product that would rival the quality of the best carpets of past epochs; to benefit the people who weave the rugs and not harm the environment in the process; and to create work that goes beyond common commercial interests, delivering true artistic expression.

Joseph Carini worked in Tibetan and Nepalese carpet industries for seven years and as an antique carpet and textiles dealer. In the 1980’s he became infatuated with antique carpets, leading to an in-depth study of colors, specialized natural dyes, design etymologies and weaving technique. With this knowledge, Carini Lang is one of the last rug makers in the world using Tibetan hand-knotting techniques and creating dyes from scratch. By preserving traditional processes and designing fresh modern styles, Joe hopes to bring the magic from the past into the contemporary world.

Our design theory is guided by nature, our experiences, and our client’s objectives. We strive to stay true to our vision in making our carpets an object of art. Supported by a production process we’re proud of, Joseph Carini’s designs ensure our clients with an investment that will never go out of style and never lose their magic.

Some carpets emit chemicals as toxic dyes loosen from the pile, but Carini Lang takes organic living one step further with silk and wool carpets that are toxic free. Along with our craftsmanship and design our carpets come with certification by the non-profit organization GoodWeave. The GoodWeave standard we work by requires producers and exporters to ensure no child labor is used in the production of rugs. Along with the GoodWeave organization Carini Lang takes part in giving back to Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club, and Doctors without Borders.
