About Taher Asad-Bakhtaris work:
‘Although it is clearly rooted in traditional Gabbeh carpet making, Bakhtiari’s innovative approach of exposed warps and bold geometry give the piece a unique contemporary and architectural aesthetic. The use of hand-spun wool and natural dyes make this carpet the epitome of sustainability.
