This bookmark is made from a unique process using vibrantly coloured nylon fibers (not printed with ink) that will not fade with normal use. They are similar to high pile carpet on a miniature scale. This process creates dimensional graphics that reproduces fine design details with a soft all-flock texture that is pleasing to the touch.
This design is inspired by the Bergamo rugs, woven in western Turkey, north of Izmir. This is the site of the ancient Greek kingdom of Pergamum, which flourished in the 2nd and 3rd centuries BC. The original carpet is woven from wool with classic terra cotta and deep blue colors derived from locally made vegetable dyes.
