Woven Playgrounds by Alexandra Kehayoglou

As the granddaughter of Greek immigrant rugmakers, it is not surprise Alexandra Kehayoglou creates unique wool rugs that bring together ancient craft and modern art. Alexandra is a dream weaver. Using a hand-tufting process that takes several months to complete, her rugs incorporate the textured, multicolored terrains, with high, hairy and uneven pile, most often imitating nature, like miniature pastures and meadows. The Buenos Aires based artist is designing rugs that are pushing the limits of art and functionality.
