Every Deirdre Dyson rug design starts as a drawing and is hand coloured by Deirdre. The designs are then faithfully translated to a digital format in our studio in order to be mapped by our Nepalese weavers and finally woven by hand. Colours are matched from a selection of over 5,000 wool and silk poms.
Deirdre’s background as a Fine Artist and innate sense of colour guides every design. The best way to understand the evolution of the creative journey; from concept to the finished carpet, is through this film created by Deirdre’s long-term Photographer, Colin Peacock.
With each new collection, Colin adds to this visual archive creating a unique record of Deirdre’s design process and acknowledging just how faithful the finished carpets are to Deirdre’s initial sketches.
Where possible, Colin has included Deirdre’s original inspiration, be it a stone or seascape, which tells the backstory for each featured design; however abstracted the finished article.
Enjoy this carefully crafted footage, which will be updated soon with Deirdre’s 2019 collection.
