Part of Fort Street Studio’s Primary Shape Collection of wild silk carpets, Cavern is an extension of the water color designs that includes Ring (a circle) and Border (a rectangle). The Cavern motif is in the shape of an oval. While each design has its own connotation, each employs an open central area with a border device without being a strict border. Cavern continues the studio’s mastery in watercolor/painterly effects with subtle bleeds and transitions. It was inspired by a snorkeling adventure in the Caribbean, and is available in moody Deep or airy Light colorways.
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.
