Designed by Fida Nehme, Utamaro’s complex overlapping patterns resemble delicate clusters of lichen as they slowly flow over an ancient stone. The use of cream colored silk adds a touch of lacy elegance.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.
