Doris Leslie Blau and Eskayel unveil a new rug collaboration-blending the finest of rug textures and techniques with fine art. The idea for this collaboration was born when Nader Bolour of Doris Leslie Blau and Shanan Campanaro of Eskayel met and realized that a combination of her artwork and design sense coupled with his industry knowledge and expertise had the potential to produce truly eclectic, never-before-seen types of rugs. Beginning with Shanan's water color paintings as the source material for the patterns, Nader was given the challenge of how to transfer the delicacy and energy of her brush strokes and ink lines into a woven structure. Utilizing his 30 years of business experience, Nader decided to focus on higher knot counts that have ever been experienced in modern rug construction to lead the project. Combining various textures including pashmina, aloe and silk, with the highest quality of weaving techniques, Nader was able to transcend the systemic limitation of woven nature and bring Shanan's imagery to life in a way that has never been seen in contemporary rug production.
