Migration I

Nakashima Edition
Edward Fields
“Migration” designed in 1959, represents a directional stylized flight of birds on a split background. This design was never manufactured as a rug but with the help of the Nakashima family and George Nakashima’s notes found on the drawing, an interpretation using primary colors for the birds on a grey background was crafted in silk and natural wools, Migration I. All designs in this edition are expertly tufted by skilled artisans.
Design Details

George Nakashima was trained in architecture then turned to furniture-making, and he was first to make woodworking a fine art. He collaborated with Edward Fields in late 1950s by creating a series of drawings to be translated into rugs that resulted in two pieces in 1959. These rugs were the start of a new collaboration between Nakashima’s children, Mira and Kevin, and the Edward Fields design team. This amazing team effort brought the collaboration to a new level by interpreting a packet of 60-year-old Nakashima sketches into a new series including six rugs and one tapestry launched in 2015.
