For the next rug, I've been thinking about the quiet tones of the Japanese saki-ori style rug, made of recycled kimono fabric.

And the appeal of the muted browns and blacks of the Japanese textiles versus the happier colors of a Kaffe Fassett piece. Oh, the choices. How can one person have such diametrically-opposed tastes?

But I do love this site - Sri Threads - a Brooklyn gallery that sells Japanese and Indian textiles. And the blog: one beautiful textile after another (especially this Ralli quilt).
