These aren’t your grandmother’s shag carpets – Alexandra Kehayoglou creates incredible rugs that look like miniature pastures and meadows. Each hand-tufted piece is a tribute to the landscape of the artist’s native Argentina. As a granddaughter of Greek immigrants, she grew up following a textile tradition that was developed thousands of years ago in Asia Minor. After graduating with a degree in visual arts, Kehayoglou returned to her roots make carpets as her ancestors did, but with a twist. As varied as the grasses of South America, the carpets are beautiful representations of natural and cultural heritage.
