These aren’t your grandmother’s shag carpets – Alexandra Kehayoglou creates incredible rugs that look like miniature pastures and meadows. Kehayoglou sources leftover scraps of wool thread from her family’s carpet factory to produce these wonderful hand-tufted artworks, which pay tribute to the landscape of her native Argentina.

As a granddaughter of Greek immigrants, Kehayoglou 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. You can purchase Alexandra Kehayoglou’s works on Artsy.
