Robert McKinley X Aelfie is a limited-edition collection of rugs and tapestries inspired by coastal landscapes. Originally designed by McKinley for the newly-opened boutique property Hotel Joaquin in Laguna Beach, CA, the six graphic textiles reference the graphic interplay of light and architecture during early morning sunrises to dwindling evening light at dusk.
Made of 100% wool, the flat weave textiles are handwoven in India utilizing three weaving techniques, two types of flat weaves and hand knotting. They are woven on a traditional floor loom with cottage industry weavers.
Each of the six designs, which will be editioned as one of ten, can function as a tapestry and are 44” x 56”.
