New Moon Unveils “The Watercolor Collection”

We’re thrilled to announce the release of an ambitious and exciting new line, The Watercolor Collection. Designer, Erika Kurtz, has modeled her designs for The Watercolor Collection after the natural beauty of the South Pacific. She explains:

“Having spent time this past year traveling throughout Australia, New Zealand and Fiji, I was really taken aback by the beauty of nature and the natural forms,” Erika says.

The Watercolor Collection features profound detail and beauty. Erika Kurtz used her memory of complex coral formations and light under the surface of the ocean as a reference for the designs. Using special dyeing techniques and incorporating silk into the design, the rugs in this Collection are bursting with vitality and color.

“Trying to capture the beauty of the world in its natural state is difficult since colors and textures are never static. So we worked to breathe life into these seemingly flat materials by mixing different materials and layering on varying hues of color,” Erika says.

One of the things we’re most proud of is the ethical work standard we bring to the production of every rug. New Moon has a zero-tolerance policy towards child labor, meaning that every rug is certified by Goodweave and made under good working conditions. Upholding a sense of integrity is important to us, which is why we take pride in our standards and products.

Announcing some exciting news regarding the new Menagerie Rug Collection! The new designs recently premiered in North Carolina’s High Point Market, and were also featured in a full-page story in Interior Design Magazine.

During the premier, visitors were invited to explore The Suites At Market Square and browse the full collection; it was a fun day! We were also grateful to be included in an issue of Interior Design Magazine, with a full-page article. “The result is stunning dimension and color variation,” the article said in regards to the collection.

The animal-inspired pieces in the Menagerie Collection combine the traditional elements of late Renaissance naturalistic design with a modern day graphic sensibility. As always, they’re handcrafted in New Moon’s true 100-knot quality.

Erika Kurtz, our lead designer and CEO, explains the conception of this collection. “Animals and naturalistic forms have been inspiration for hand-woven textiles and tapestries since the beginning,” Erika says. “These highly decorative scenes combine historical iconography in a contemporary layout.”

Some of the Menagerie rug designs include…

Khan, ebony: An ancient tiger comes to life in this playful design. Features Tibetan wool, Chinese silk, natural nettle fibers, and hues of gold, russet and bronze.

Gryphon: Elizabethan needlework comes to life in this fantasy. This mosaic-like design combines the aesthetics of the past and present to create a unique and vibrant piece.

Zephir, rainforest or jungle cool: A whimsical Deco jungle, home to a bevy of very happy monkeys.
