At the heart of Lapchi is a rug maker with a wealth of experience in custom-made rugs.
Seen from the street, our homes may resemble others. Within, they express our style and uniqueness. Unlike rugs mass-produced by others, Lapchi rugs are designed and produced one at a time for people with passion for design.
In 1997, drawing on years of experience with antique rugs, Salman Khan (left) began making new rugs in Pakistan. In Boston, Kerry Smith (right) was designing and selling “custom made bread.”
Three years later, they teamed up to create a company that would revolutionize the hand-made rug industry.
Lapchi created the infrastructure in Nepal to make rugs to exact specifications. Today Salman Khan and a staff of 20 closely monitor the production of every Lapchi custom rug.
Lapchi also created the tools to enable design professionals and their clients to “create” rugs to fit perfectly in their interior spaces.
In 2004, rug maker Lapchi opened a Rug Design Studio called Atelier Lapchi in the Merchandise Mart in Chicago. Today, Lapchi rugs are sold through Lapchi Rug Design Studios and wholesale client showrooms through the US and Canada.
Since 2001, Lapchi has produced thousands of custom rugs, and the Lapchi approach has become the model for high-end rug companies world-wide.
