Hand-Tufting Wool Rug Resembling Pastures by Alexandra Kehayoglou

Argentine artist from Buenos Aires, 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.

Using discarded thread from her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires, Alexandra Kehayoglou describes her rugs as portals to memories, with a direct connection to her Greek grandparents’ past weaving of Ottoman-style carpets in Turkey. Whether room-sized, wall-hung, or used to cover furniture, the rugs take their natural subjects from the landscape of her native Argentina—forests, desert islands, Patagonian glaciers, and the pastizales (grasslands) where the sheep from which the wool is sheared also graze.
