An abstract symmetry of images resembling birds, butterflies, and flowers looped together with spiraling tendrils. This highly evocative pattern has ambiguous floral motifs of blossoms and tendrils that transform into stranger creatures as one contemplates the carpet. The design echo Arts and Crafts and Turkish Oushak designs, while bridging the modern and the traditional in application and outlook.
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.
