Aquasilk Overdyed Runner, 3'8"x12'1"

This one-of-a-kind rug is individually hand-knotted from handspun, recycled silk and wool in India. An allover pattern of stylized floral motifs are overdyed in a vivid plum palette to form a mesmerizing composition of iridescent patterns on the sky blue ground. Evocative of poetic watercolor paintings, this piece combines the artistry of traditional techniques with the contemporary design of translucent color.
