POMPEO

Nepalese hand-knotted carpet - 200 knot
100% Tibetan Wool + Chinese Silk
7' - 6" w. x 9' - 3" l. / 2.3 m. x 2.8 m.
raised silk and wool tiles on abrash wool


Individually placed images of Roman mosaic tiles - "tesserae", were digitally laid onto a contemporary, brushed circle and border design to create this 200 knot silk and Tibetan wool carpet.

The use of two pile heights ensures that each individual "stone" tile is raised from the background. Careful hand-trimming and finishing completes the effect.
