The ABC’s of Carpets


The last time I was in New York, I found myself completely spellbound by these incredibly colored, seemingly sunwashed rugs scattered about the showroom floor at ABC Carpet. They’re part of an ocean-inspired collection called Aquasilk. “Hand-woven by indigenous weavers in India using the finest recycled Sari silk, each unique design takes six to nine months to produce. Over-dyed with translucent layers of color, brilliant traces of patter emerge through the iridescent silk surface to compose mesmerizing, painterly compositions.” Mesmerizing, indeed. (As always click to shop! Oh – and yes, prices listed are in US dollars, not pesos…)
