From iris to carpet

Every iCarpet is utterly unique. That’s not just because it is handmade. Each one is made in the image of a real-life iris. The template for your iCarpet is based on a high-resolution image of your eye. Dutch photographer Raymond van Zessen captures your iris with a macro lens. Working with a special image editor, Jeannine creates a template that retains the power of the original image while consolidating the sheer infinite number of colors to a manageable palette. Plotted in the original format of your carpet, this image serves as a pattern for the loom workers.
