Fashion designer Monsieur Christian Lacroix and ege have reaped the benefits of each other's skills for more than a decade. Working closely with the ege design team, Monsieur Christian Lacroix has tailored a number of impressive carpets for prestige customers: e.g. The Paris Museum of Fashion, Palais Galliera, Musée Réattu, Musée Cognacq-Jay, and also, Hôtel du Petit Moulin, Hôtel l'Antoine, Hôtel Notre Dame, and Hôtel Jules César. The degree of detail in patterns and colours made ege carpets a natural choice for this extravagant haute couture designer.
Taking their successful and long-standing collaboration to the next level, Monsieur Christian Lacroix and ege carpets have now entered the floor together with a collection of expressive and rich carpet designs by launching the collection ATELIER BY MONSIEUR CHRISTIAN LACROIX.

"To me the carpet is a way of communicating: it’s like words, it’s like music. A carpet is like make-up, too. It changes the surface: it makes the room larger, wider or smaller. It underlines what you want to express. It’s like the make-up of music.”
