Wool Rug Artworks by Alexandra Kehayoglou

Argentine artist Alexandra Kehayoglou crafts wool rugs as unique works of art using a hand-tufting process that takes several months to complete.

The rugs imitate miniature pastures and meadows incorporating their textured, multicolor terrains. Each rug is made from discarded or excess thread from her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires and are inspired by forests, desert islands, glaciers, and grasslands (pastizales) of her native Argentina. She describes her work as portals to memories, directly connected to her Greek grandparents’ past weaving of Ottoman-style carpets in Turkey.
