The concept was born in 1981 and rug manufacture first commenced in 1983. The aim was to present the very best aspects of traditional Turkish carpet whilst drawing on the abstract notions and freshness found in 20th cent art. Piet Mondrian being the initial inspiration and start point. The Turkish DOBAG project ( supported by UNESCO ) in the early 1980s which re-established the hitherto lost methods of natural dyes / hand spinning was instrumental to the foundation of CRORMAC.
The trailblazing CRORMAC output has had a huge impact leaving a legacy encouraging of a proliferation seen in profusion to this day not only in Turkey but also Iran and India with the likes of Christopher Farr and many others. With the relocation of the South Molton Street London office in 1990, the CRORMAC production went dormant to be resurrected in 2013.
