Handwoven Wool Rug / Kilim, Grey, Coral and Sand, Natural Dye, by Andrew Boos

$6,500

About

This rug is a one of a kind heirloom piece. Inspired by movement, the asymmetrical design is meant to enhance the flow of any space. With references to both Art Deco and contemporary design elements, this piece will stand out as an addition to any interior space. Andrew Boos seeks to redefine what a rug is. His work is not meant to be the static anchor of a room, rather it is a new architectural element. As usable art, his rugs encourage the flow of movement through a space. They redirect the focus from 2d static wall decorations to an element that creates an immersive environment. His rugs become a focal point, and invite you to enter and experience the space in a way that traditional rugs cannot. The entire process of creating this rug was done in the artist's Brooklyn studio. From dying the yarn, to weaving and finishing the piece. No part of the process is outsourced. Each work produced by the artist is a bespoke heirloom piece. The rug is woven with traditional Kilim techniques, using interlocking yarn to add strength and stability and is strong enough to withstand daily traffic. As a handmade piece this rug may include minor imperfections and variations, representing the true nature of the natural materials and techniques. The back of the rug has been finished so the piece may be reversed. Each color included in this rug was hand-dyed by the artist using natural dyes to achieve the subtle variety in tones. The greys were created using logwood, tannin and iron. The pink and coral were created with a combination of madder and marigold. Note: Natural dyes are very responsive to different types of light. The color tones and hues will vary depending on whether your space is lit with fluorescent, incandescent or natural light. These photos were taken in bright, studio lighting. Measures: approximate 58" x 91.5" x 5" cotton fringe on both ends.

About The Maker

Andrew Boos is an artist and bespoke rug designer based in Brooklyn, NY. His work is inspired by the physics of light and space, exploring those interactions through the use of line, shape and color. He hand dyes his yarn to achieve subtle variations in tone. This allows for a much freer use of color, more akin to paintings than traditional textiles. ​ The designs are composed on the loom and handwoven by the artist using traditional kilim and tapestry techniques. Starting from a central theme involving the interaction of shape and color, elements are added or subtracted as the piece progresses, allowing for spontaneity and freedom throughout the weaving process. Each piece is one of a kind.
