Innovated new techniques of twisted silk yarns with long threads and flat looped knots are combined with a traditional VASE design. It explores new ways of using traditional silk yarns and patterns with modern techniques. The effect is that of an abstract design creating the illusion it has faded in time over the years. Upon closer viewing, the pattern disappears almost magically. The design is then transformed into a third dimension, one of textures that creates shadows and movement by the long yarns, whilst hidden behind is the traditional vase design as it becomes a hidden treasure. The rug design is woven in Tibetan knot to a high quality of 100 knots only using the highest quality of 100% Handspun silks. The size is 9 feet x 12 feet.
