Argentine artist Alexandra Kehayoglou crafts unique rugs look like they belong in a woodland fairytale. She recycles leftover carpet scraps to make rugs that resemble vibrant, natural landscapes.
Kehayoglou’s grandparents used to weave Ottoman-style carpets in Turkey, and her family currently runs a carpet factory in Buenos Aires. Inspired by tradition, she began using the factory’s discarded wool and thread scraps to create something that was completely her own.
She tufts most rugs by hand to make rugs that look like forests, grasslands, deserts, and glaciers. Each rug can take months to complete, with some rugs covering more than 1500 square feet.
