Eco Friendly Irongate

The Irongate rug (one of two I designed for Empiric) is now available in a combination of un-dyed cactus and soy. The natural colors of these materials are so rich and soft to the touch they have all the luxury of silk for a fraction of the price. I am tickled about how it turned out! In addition to the eco friendly alternative, we also made a tweak to the design.

It is now offered, in the standard wool or cactus/soy combination, as a single sphere.

I love the idea of the two patterns being used in adjoining spaces to tie the design together. Alternatively it would be fun to do a custom runner which I've been obsessing about since seeing the entry in friend and fellow designer Max Gough's Rossmore project.
