iCarpet captures the full beauty of the human iris, combining the power and beauty of the human gaze with the tactile joy of silk and wool and the energy of an artfully handcrafted object. Each eye is absolutely unique, containing a universe of contrasting flecks of color in different sizes, intricate patterns, delicate lines, and breathtaking depth.
As macro-lens photo of a person’s iris serves as basis for the design and color selection. Jeannine then chooses each color from a rich sample palette. Based on these sample codes, the artist creates a carpet-sized loom pattern. Artisans in Nepal then hand-knot the carpets from wool and vegetable bamboo silk. The manufacturer is licensed under the GoodWeave certification program, and no animals were harmed to obtain the Tibetan highland wool used to create iCarpet.
