Zoë Pawlak’s Eden collection was born from a forced moment of stillness: a retreat as Artist in Residence at Summit in Eden, Utah, where Pawlak observed and documented every sunrise and sunset from her spot at the base of Powder Mountain.
Witnessing so intimately how the light hit the mountains in new ways every day inspired a series of thoughtful paintings, each with a telltale bronze streak slicing through the whites of snow and ice. It’s a documentation of nature, emotion and time — both a snapshot of serenity and a reminder of the days that march unstoppably forward.
Those paintings have now been reinterpreted as the Eden rug collection, produced in collaboration with Vancouver’s Burritt Bros. Each rug is 100 knots per square inch, made with Himalayan wool and Chinese silk, and hand-knotted in Nepal. Lead-time is approximately four to five months; custom sizes and samples available on request.
