While enjoying the bucolic landscape view from a porch in Sag Harbor NY, Janis Provisor and Brad Davis were inspired to blur their surroundings with, of all tools, a squeegee. Painterly swaths are pulled through a light background that still hints at the periphery, while splotches accent and create an unexpected layer of visual interest. Squeeze is nature, erased.
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.
