In the design Totem, the hand-drawn line is employed to create simple building blocks to build a structural unit. The rusty red color of the motif relates to oxidized iron filings found on rocks that appear to be primitive naturally occurring “drawings”.
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.
