Lush meadows, rolling hills, and multicolored landscapes come alive in the carpets of Argentine artist Alexandra Kehayoglou. Hailing from a family of rug makers (her family owns one of South America’s largest carpet companies, El Espartano), Kehayoglou is no newcomer when it comes to craft, but manages to put her own modern spin on the ancient art of rug-making. Her hand-tufted rugs and carpets vary in size: she creates room-sized tapestries or small mossy circles, and each of them end up looking like gorgeous textural landscape paintings. Her workshop-atelier is in Argentina, but her rugs have rapidly gaining popularity and crossing oceans: Dries Van Noten models walked down her green carpet-catwalk during this year’s Paris Fashion Week.
