Designed by Fida Nehme and Eva Sutton, Ion’s two colors of black and white Mulberry silk reference water running across a surface in meandering rivulets and create an illusion of layering and transparency. The naturally shimmering, reflective quality of silk is integral in creating Ion’s fluid, watery feeling. Hand-knotted by our weavers using the Tibetan knot, this carpet is made from virgin New Zealand worsted wool and natural Mulberry silk. High density knotting (121 knots per inch and above) produces a clarity of shape and continuity of color not achievable through lower knot counts (80 and below). We believe that “slow fashion”, made well with long-lasting materials and chosen with the future in mind is the obvious choice for us as responsible makers and you as aware consumers. Our carpets are modern heirlooms meant to last for generations.
