From its earliest days, skateboarding and skateboarders have exuded the DIY ethos. 40+ years later and not much has changed. SNKRS sits down with Osama and Ayman of Carpet Co. to discuss starting a brand in their basement while juggling their days jobs as engineers for the city of Baltimore and NASA.
Combining their Egyptian heritage with their handmade, B-more roots, Carpet crafted a double-layer, tear-away Dunk with a nod to cyanotype-style screenprinting on the top layer and paint-splattered gold underneath.
The Kebab Dunk mixes layers of color and texture that pull from a street food classic and add local flavor.
