Design Inspiration

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 repeat, sporadically accented with cultivated silk. The two debut colorways are Butternut, a buttery pattern with a dash of cornflower blue, and Liquorice, inky strokes with cherry red confetti. The original artwork was a black watercolor and pen drawing, inspired by an antique cabinet.

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.
