Aubin Grey Blue
AUBIN refers to St. Aubin-sur-Mer, a Normandie village where Principals & Creative Directors Janis Provisor and Brad Davis spent time during an artistic retreat at the seaside. Utilizing an app that alerted them to the movements of the tide, they biked every day to the beach to take in the magnificent low tide – an incredible stretch out to sea, longer than a New York City block. The patterns of the water breaking on the sand were different every day, and inspired the duo to create this new modern carpet design.
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.
