The carpet at Portland International Airport (PDX) was designed in 1987, to replace the tiles which created a harsh noise as luggage rolled over one tile onto another. It has since become a symbol of home for Portlanders.
The carpet has a cult following; it has its own instagram tag (#pdxcarpet), along with three twitter accounts. People even dress as the carpet for Halloween, and some go as far as getting PDX tattoos. Rogue has created a tasty India Pale Ale 'PDX Carpet' brew.
Looking forward to the next time we see PDX carpet.
