Curator's Notes

The Collection

Handwoven with silk thread from thousands of recycled saris, those staples of Indian culture which date back to 2800 BCE. In this collection, silk saris are taken apart thread by thread. Artisans sort the threads by color, and spin them into a yarn of hundreds of shades, giving it an incredible depth and range of hue.

The Motifs
  • This rug has a minimal design with a single color field, showcasing the yarn's texture and sheen
  • Directional design or color gradients with purposeful asymmetry and movement
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
The Supplier

Our partner, based in Agra, is a second-generation rug-maker whose father started the business in the late 1970's when the area experienced a weaving renaissance. Known for their high quality and the uniqueness of their product, they make it a point not to research the online presence of their customers or other rug-makers, to avoid tunnel vision, and to expand the possibilities of innovation.

The Materials

Sari silk yarn is made by removing individual threads from recycled silk saris, then sorting these threads by color group - so a pile of red yarn might have hundreds of different shades of red, which, when spun together, gives a beautiful depth of tone which cannot be recreated by dyeing. In this piece, recycled sari silk is combined with wool for softness and texture, and added to a cotton foundation for durability.
