    Alpha to Omega: Edward Fields' Alpha Workshops Edition

    Edward Fields Carpet Makers

     

    As executive director of the nonprofit Alpha Workshops, Kenneth Wampler had trained people living with HIV and AIDS to create practically anything you can think of: furniture, lamps, wallpaper, decorative finishes. But not flooring. That changed with Edward Fields Carpet Makers's Alpha Workshops Edition.


    Adapted from archival­ samples provided by Wampler, the 13 hand-tufted rugs have Greek names as a nod to Alpha's. In Haldis, multiple levels of wool and matte silk replicate marble. Bedros features streaks of flax across a ground combining flax with matte silk. Epifanio reinterprets a finish on a clay sculpture in wool and glittery Lurex. Hester­ takes an exercise in developing­ a screen print and reimagines it in wool and matte silk. And Phaedra's white viscose on bright yellow wool recalls an Alpha specialty that's not Greek but Japanese, the 14th-century lacquering technique negoro-nuri.


    The standard size is 8 by 10 feet. Or customize. 212-310-0400; edwardfields­.com.
