AV Orestes I

Alpha Workshops Edition for Aviation
Edward Fields
Meaning “mountain,” this striking pattern evokes topography. The original gouache painting that inspired this design was made from layers of rich colors that have been scratched to reveal the underlying hues represented in mostly dull silk with accents of flax and thick wool. This design is expertly tufted by skilled artisans.

The Alpha Workshops is the first non-profit organisation in the US to provide decorative arts education and employment for adults with visible and invisible disabilities, including HIV/AIDS. Dedicated to creating beauty and changing lives, the organization was founded in 1995 and modelled on the famed Omega Workshops, the Wiener Werkstätte, the Bauhaus, and the American Arts & Crafts movement. Edward Fields designers worked in close union with The Alpha Workshops team on two editions, adapting a selection of patterns from the design archives resulting in an exclusive suite of bespoke rugs.
