By the time you’re done listening to this mix, five to ten new board companies were probably just started. Some good, some horrible.
As more crews form their own Instagram board and clothing companies, it’ll take a lot more effort to stand out from the rest of them. But for Carpet Company, and their founders, Ayman and Osama Abdeldayem standing out has never really been a problem.
It’s not just their eye for design that makes them shine, it’s their silkscreening execution, authentic personalities, and independence from the rest of the industry that makes Carpet Co. seem fresh. Because of this, they’ve been able to attract the attention of icons like Pontus Alv and Erik Ellington, while still putting together a decent team of young rippers like Quinn Batley and Rashad Murray.
Everything Carpet has put out in the brand’s short history has been fire so far, and this mix is no different. Make sure to download it here while you can.
