About Mirzyan

Christopher Farr - 2021

A set of three rugs based on Matthew's graphic sketches from the past few years.

Each rug draws upon the vast range of techniques available to Christopher Farr and has been made in a different location to celebrate the particular expertise of rug makers in India, Afghanistan and Turkey. These prolific carpet weaving countries and the thousands of years of inherent knowledge and skills, passed down through the generations, is evident in the craftsmanship of each of the three designs. In recognition of this heritage, each rug is named after the region where it has been made: Usahk, Mirzyan and Banares.
