Because you tread the rug for passion, barefoot. It is a regained freedom, a soft domesticity that embellishes and characterizes any environment.
Because the rug is emotion.

Karpeta introduces itself like that and everything is perfect.

Carlo Volpi Knitwear

10 maggio 2016

From Florence to London. Here is the story of a knitting artist who takes inspirations from Pop trend and urban culture landscapes.

Carlo Volpi founded his label in 2014 thanks to his life-long affair with knitting. Both of his grandmothers worked for small knit factories in a village next to Florence and from them he inherited the passion for his craft.

After completing the Royal College of Art in London, Carlo Volpi’s works started to gain popularity and prestigious success. Winning an award at Premiere Vision in Paris, being chosen in 2015 by Vogue to show his collection during Milan Fashion Week, exposing at the event  Altaroma, Carlo Volpi Knitwear brand is known as one of the best example of knitting experimentation and study.

Carlo Volpi’s creations are characterized by a vibrant clash of colors  and an eclectic mix of stitches and textures. He loves to reinvent traditional hand crafted techniques mixing them with the latest manufacturing technologies. The result is a series of exclusive and limited pieces created in London and Italy by himself and a small team of knitters.

After the collections Lipstick Stab Wounds and 000, 0Love 4Love takes inspiration from the short and repetitive love stories passing by on the radio. The fast and banal emotions that characterize modern love songs reflect the artistic taste evolution in the society; everything moves so quickly and we don’t have the time to pay attention. The colors are bright and the tones matches quote advertise logos and sport uniforms.

As always the man who chooses Carlo Volpi Knitwear brand is eccentric, nonconformist and trusts in his individuality.
