Based on a moiré taffeta, Moire is an understated irregular striped carpet made out of thin stripes in three shades of umber that creates a moiré effect. What appears as a minimalist neutral ground, on closer inspection, comes alive with intriguing hidden patterns. Another clever attempt by Fort Street Studio to subvert the obvious and create a hush of silk carpet magic.
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.
