Project Americana

June 24, 2010

“Project Americana originated with the intention of encouraging design without boundaries through the freedom of expression and reviving lost folk art traditions.

ABC commissioned a group of artisans from a remote village in the southern mountain region of Turkey to create the American flag without any creative direction or reference materials. The artisans were given an assortment of textiles, denim and vintage carpet remnants in a wide variety of colors, patterns and textures. Each rug was hand-constructed using traditional quilting.” methods.
