Hand knotted Tekke Rug, 2014Christopher Farr

“I have worked with Christopher Farr (a hand- made carpets company) for almost 20 years, and this piece to me is the best work we have made to date, both the design and the process. The project was first shown at an event created by Wallpaper Magazine called Hand Made in London, which was organised to raise awareness of the Middle East, where the Tekke (Turkmen tribe) craft technique is being eroded by war and displacement. Conceptually I have always been a fan of the oil and water visualisations made in the 60’s by Pink Floyd and with this I have tried to capture it in just a moment.”
