ARTIST KELAGAYI-2017


     The idea behind Art Scarves by Menzer Hajiyeva is to combine traditional art forms with modern technologies to create wearable art inspired by the heritage of Azerbaijan.

     This collection has been inspired by beautiful patterns on Guba carpets dating from 1850. Carpets were coded symbols that serve as a direct window from history’s memory into the future.

     The reflections of a certain historical geographical religious and philosophical way of thinking characteristic of that period is seen on carpets through symbols and extraordinary color. Carpet designs have been selected and carved out of wood and manually transferred onto silk and dyed using natural dyes for this collection.
