Incredible handmade carpets by Faig Ahmed

Faig Ahmed is a mixed-media artist based in Azerbaijan who creates incredible handmade carpets that are not exactly your typical floor rug. He takes the design of a traditional Azerbaijani rug and distorts, rearranges, and reinterprets them in his own way. Ahmed says of his work, ‘The carpet is a symbol of invincible tradition of the East, it’s a visualization of an undestroyable icon’. After looking at his work, regular rugs just seem boring.
