wp – peacock one
1 in stock
This woven piece was inspired by the town where I live – Dalton, GA, which is home to all of the major flooring manufacturers in the world. It came to be this because about a hundred years ago the area became famous for chenille bedspreads with peacock designs – dubbing the area “Peacock Alley” and eventually transforming into carpet manufacturing. It wasn’t a huge leap for me to think of peacocks as they are now a bit of a mascot in Dalton, with our downtown dotted with artful peacock statues and a lovely peacock mural on a prominent building. This piece was even woven with some fiber that was once intended to become a carpet. Many believe that the eyes of a peacock’s tail feathers can offer safety as they watch over you, while others see them as an evil eye. I choose to feel comfort as it watches over me.
Made in Dalton, GA. Price includes US domestic shipping vis USPS priority (tracking number, insurance and 2-3 day delivery.)
