Dimensions: 4’ x 8’
Fiber: Wool and
silk on a cotton foundation
Design: The blending of the
wool yarns with the silk helps create the transitions from one color to the next.
Care: Professional cleaning
Designer's inspiration: Inspired
by two Oriental rugs with ornate patterns of rich navy blues and vivid reds
that were in his family home as he was growing up, Asher wanted to capture his memory of
those rugs when sunlight reflected off their silk, washing out the colors, turning them almost iridescent and blurring their patterns together.
