Alexandra Kehayoglou was born into Argentina’s first family of rugmakers. The 34-year-old artist started making unique, moss-like carpets after finishing art school in 2008. Kehayoglou uses scraps and threads from her family’s Buenos Aires factory, taking up to two months to create one piece; some even resemble paintings.

“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.”
