this is the process of our artwork production
Alex and me visited Dawari, a very authentic shop that offers a huge variety of oriental carpets in Linz. Heidemarie Dawari welcomed us very friendly. Her husband is Iranian and they both combine their passion for handmade oriental carpet by keeping their carpet shop open beside their main jobs.
We had coffee together and long talks about the different facets of oriental carpets. Heidi Dawari agreed to be recorded while she was explaining the different kinds of oriental carpets, their production, functionality and the properties of nomad carpets. Moreover she photocopied parts of Oriental rug books and gave us tablecloth with oriental prints as a present. Thank you!
