One of the best new debuts I found at the NYIGF was the Sundara Rug Collection by Donna Wilson and distributed by SCP. All rugs are hand-made in India, using three different techniques: flat-weaving, hand-looming and hand-tufting. Like Donna's other designs for SCP — Frank, Henry & Ernest pouffes and Nos Das pillows, throws and bags — color and texture are at the fore-front for these new rug designs.
SUNDARA RUG MUST SEES:
• Fairisle — hand-loomed in 3 colorways peacock/orange, grey/pink & neutral/brown. Pay special attention to the different patterns in the hand-loomed surface of the rug!
• Mountain Spot — flat-weave kilim in 80% wool and 20% cotton
• Scope — hand-tufted wool
