Scallop, the newest watercolor design from Fort Street Studio, features a prominent chartreuse line drawn by the hand of artist and designer Janis Provisor. While painting watercolors at the beach, the designer was taken by a scallop line that appeared as the water receded. The simple, topsy-turvy line, which meets a bleeding edge, creates a simple and natural stroke on top of a multi-faceted navy wash.
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.
