Asian Field Steel
Asian Field has its origins in the textured strokes of Chinese painting that render rocks. It was Principals & Creative Directors Janis Provisor and Brad Davis’ first overall field design that had no focal point. Asian Field was also the first design to use the overtly digital look of pattern-making for hand-knotted carpets. With the random rectangles of the design and the casual sheen of wild silk, this luxurious rug takes on the look of crushed velvet.
This contemporary rug design is interpreted in wild Dandong silk according to time treasured Persian hand-knotting techniques. Color-precise yarn dyeing enables the weavers to execute the studio’s painterly designs with watercolor bleeds and the illusion of three-dimensional, geometric texture. Wild Dandong silk is especially plush and durable, and when hand-cut provides the carpets with a sophisticated suede-like finish that subtly enhances the design’s modern, unique, and evocative motifs.
100% hand-knotted wild silk pile. 100% cotton warp & weft. 120 knots per line. 15 strands per knot. 5/16″ pile height.
