Alexandra Kehayoglou Hand-Tufts Carpeted Landscapes


Using scraps leftover thread from her family’s carpet factory located in Buenos Aires, artist Alexandra Kehayoglou produces handmade wool rugs that mimic natural textures like moss, water, trees, and pastures.

Each carpet Kehayoglou creates is hand-tufted in her studio, made of materials retrieved from the factory El Espartano. The artist collects the materials and takes them as her prime medium, transforming an entire room into a lush meadow dotted with pools of water and tufts of grass.  (Photos © Alexandra Kehayoglou)
