One of a Kind

Amy Tyson

We are really excited about this unique and creative project that we just finished! We started with a Photoshop rendering because we don't have a sample for every pattern and every color contained in this rug.

Once the client approved the rendering, we printed it for the weavers to help guide them along as they were weaving. We started with dark shades as per the image.

We used a consistent beige color for the background and varied the pattern colors. We also used some grey and brown yarns that were either discontinued or leftover from past projects.

This adds to the beauty because there are so many different shades and colors throughout the whole piece. It also makes it impossible to reproduce exactly. See all the colors of grey on the shuttles below.

The intersection of patterns and colors are a bit of surprise because the rug can never match the rendering. There are over 2000 different colors of yarn in the finished rug.

This rug was commission by Maplecraft for the BIA Parade of Homes.

Stunning Color in Mumbai

Amy Tyson

Every since I saw this space I can't stop thinking about it. The designer is Marie-Anne Oudejans, a very interesting woman with deep roots in fashion as well as interiors. Architectural Digest did a piece on this Gem Palace last summer. The space is magnificant and the precise attention to detail is amazing.

Soft Green

It's summer time and we are thinking about soft greens to create a casual vibe.

First Talara Rug

Amy Tyson

Talara is the name of this new pattern. This is a project we got from Stark in San Francisco. It's going to be an entrance runner. The color is very rich, more like the photo of Aurora checking the front.
