Designed while Principals Janis Provisor and Brad Davis were traveling in Bali, the motif of ARANG GREEN resembles a charcoal rubbing of a traditional Balinese woodcarving. Indeed, in Bahasa (the official language of Indonesia), ‘Arang’ refers to charcoal. The soft but regular texture is offset by an adventuresome palette of blue-greens. This lighter wash of color is a colorful alternative to neutrals.
The design is interpreted in a blend of hand processed, high-altitude wool and cultivated silk, using time treasured hand-knotting techniques. Meticulous dyeing of the yarns produce complexity and depth of color which enrich the overall aspect of the carpet. The tweeding of wool and silk, and cultivated silk accents, creates a shimmery mix that is a delightful expansion of Fort Street Studio’s repertoire of beautifully hand-crafted carpets.
