New York-based artist and designer, Joe Doucet, collaborated with Odabashian, one of the oldest handmade rug companies in the Americas, to create the limited edition ALIGN. The Tibetan-knotted rug was created just for the recently held WantedDesign 2013 and was on display there.
Most knotted rugs of this caliber are made around 2mm x 2mm grids and Doucet used this to work off of when he came up with his geometric design. The rug is woven in India and the design measures 5′ x 8′ and contains over one million, Tibetan single knots. Only 10 are available at this size but other sizes can be made custom.
