Handmade rugs: folklore craft as high art.
Rooted in age-old techniques, CHUK PALU pile rugs, sumaks and kilims have a modern feel: patterns are subtle. Colour and bold textures are central to the design. A contemporary piece of art produced in ancient ways, each rug is woven completely by hand, using hand spun yarns. Bringing folkloric craft tradition into the realm of high art is the mission of founder Rahim Walizada. This year CHUK PALU introduces a collection of hand-blown Herat glass: spectacular glasses, plates and tiles.
