Zig Zag Butternut
Since debuting its line of wool carpets in 2013, Fort Street Studio has continued to extend its artistic, painterly aesthetic within this new medium. Enter ZIG ZAG, a “chevronesque” pattern colored with a creamy base and an irregular butternut repeat, sporadically accented with cornflower blue cultivated silk. The original artwork was a black watercolor and pen drawing, inspired by an antique cabinet.
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 enhanced texture. Meticulous dyeing of the yarns produce complexity and depth of color which enrich the overall aspect of the carpet. The fusing of wool and silk creates a shimmery mix that is a delightful expansion of Fort Street Studio’s repertoire of beautifully hand-crafted carpets.
