Bring The Argentinian Grasslands Indoors With These Stunning Handmade Rugs


Argentinian artist Alexandra Kehayoglou hand-crafts gorgeous rugs that bring the outside in — the lush green blankets and tapestries let the owner snuggle up to the outside world, inside. Alexandra makes the rugs from discarded thread scraps that she collects from her family’s carpet factory in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

“I grew up surrounded by rugs,” Kehayoglou told Instagram. “I realized that the knowledge of rugs I had was in my genes. Using it as an artist became inevitable.”


“The style that I’ve created is an abstraction of landscapes from my country. I would like everyone that looks at my pieces to feel that they are entering a new context. The pieces are big and feel infinite. They are meant to be portals that have the power of taking you where your memories are.”
