A design in Process Unlimited's Virtu collection
NEW YORK-For the New York International Carpet Show next month, Oct. 6-8, Process Unlimited will debut Virtu, a collection of eight digitally conceived hand-knotted Tibetan wool rugs designed by David Shaw Nicholls.
Inspired by classic Persian carpets and with Italian Renaissance flair, the 120-knot, 9-by-12 rugs are the result of original digital art converted into pixilated textiles in a labor-intensive process.
The company said new techniques had to be developed to realize these elaborate and myriad-hued designs.
Process Unlimited will be exhibiting during the show at the Metropolitan Pavilion.
