‘BRAT’ — The First Video By Carpet Company Is Live

Make skateboards, and people will ask, “who’s on the team?!”

Actually, it’s usually the first thing people ask when you start a board brand.

For the longest time, Carpet avoided answering that question, and kept forging ahead toward becoming one of today’s best brands by going against the grain: hand-printing and numbering every one of their boards that make it to the masses, engineering a custom-blank tee that you can quite literally feel the difference of when rummaging through your local shop’s shirt rack, and sticking to their roots in Baltimore, away from the hotbeds of the “industry.” Hell, they got their own building before they dropped a skate video.

Their inaugural project, BRAT triples [quadruples?] down on doing it their way: no cranes, all homie strength, indeed.

The video features Quinn Batley (who you no-doubt know from Homies Network and the older Alex Greenberg-helmed Noah projects by now), Rashad Murray (whose story stands as one of the most inspiring things you’ll ever hear), and a break-out performance from Mason Padilla (a perpetual highlight in recent D.C. scene videos.) Those three are anchored by co-starring appearances from Carpet’s founders, Osama and Ayman Abdeldayem.
