Skala in Litchee, 8 ft. x 10 ft.
8 ft. x 10 ft.Virgin New Zealand Wool & Mulberry Silk, Hand knotted, Tibetan Knots, 121 knots/in2.“Scala”, a dancing net of litchee silk triangles, undulates rhythmically on a deep cream background. Like the modern primitive abstraction of a Paul Klee painting, this lively mesh generates an illusion of constant expansion and contraction. The deliberately distorted and elongated forms playfully remind us of children's drawings, a favorite reference of the designer, Fida Nehme.
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.
