After first debuting its line of wool carpets in 2013, Fort Street Studio continues to extend its artistic, painterly aesthetic within this new medium. The Studio’s most recent offering is the design CODE, whose subtly-vertical design is reminiscent of old adding-machine tapes, or old cards used for coding computers.
The design is interpreted in a blend of hand processed, high-altitude wool and cultivated silk, using time treasured hand-knotting techniques that give the rug it’s corduroy-like texture. Meticulous dyeing of the yarns produce complexity and depth of color which enrich the overall aspect of the carpet. The tweeding of wool and silk creates a shimmery mix that is a delightful expansion of Fort Street Studio’s repertoire of beautifully hand-crafted carpets.
