Common Threads Collection Watteau No. 3 from Jan Kath

$16,600.00 USD

As sweet as it is stylish, The Watteau No. 3 is a jewell in our collection.

The Common Threads Collection has its roots in late 18th and 19th Century necessity. As typically younger women form Scandinavia, Germany, and the Netherlands would learn to mend clothing, more so to extend the life of garments as opposed to stylistic flair, they often created embellishments and patterns within the stitches themselves. Collected Darning Samplers showing the learning of such patterns and mending techniques currently housed in the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico became the inspiration for a series of rugs paying homage to this often under appreciated local craft and regional folk art.

This lovely rug, takes its name to the 18th Century Flanders born French artist Antione Watteu, who is most widely credited as the painter who spurred a revival in color and movement during the late Rococo movement. The Watteau No. 3 features strips of wool and silk pile knotted in lovely blue toned lattice and chevrons criss crossing a neutral flat woven field of off white wool. The loose gridding is architecture chic as well as charmingly whimsical folk art.

This is just one example of the many wonderful rugs that we have in our showroom. Purchase through our site and have it shipped to you, or come see this or any of our other lovingly curated rugs and textiles in person in our 2037 NW Lovejoy Street showroom in NW Portland, Oregon.
