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.
