CARPET ARTISTRY IN BEIRUT

DECEMBER 13, 2017

In its mission to continue exploring novel ways of creating carpets, Iwan Maktabi is unveiling its stunning new Weavolution Hechizoo collection on December 14, in its flagship Ashrafieh boutique.

Created exclusively for Iwan Maktabi by Colombian artist Jorge Lizarazo, the handmade carpets are made with unusual materials, like copper, zinc, aluminum, leather and horsehair. Hechizoo means bewitched in Spanish, Lizarazo explains, adding that this new carpet collection is “about the unexpected combinations of materials, as I always see a material in terms of how I can change its use.”

The Weavolution Hechizoo collection is on view at Iwan Maktabi in Ashrafieh until January 5, 2018.
