The Dessus Dessous or “Top to Bottom” collection is characterized by an intricate layering of lines and motifs creating a ‘Trompe l’Oeil’ effect with its seeming depth and play on perspective. Each rug is made of three woven strata including a plain background that is then layered with a first woven pattern followed by the top one. The apparent ease and freedom of the artist’s strokes hide the precision of painstaking weaving work. The depth and the vibrance of these decorative rugs are both emphasized by a rich mix of fine materials combining pure silk with luxurious wool and mohair.
