Machine ki Duniya
Exhibitor: Jaipur Rugs
The rug Machine ki Duniya by our weaver-designer is part of Manchaha, a sustainable initiative where weavers get to design their own rug spontaneously on the loom.

’19-19’ is a series of 6 stunning handwoven wool and silk rugs. The title ‘19-19’ refers to the founding year of the first Bauhaus school in Weimar, with each rug named after a female designer, central to the development of the Bauhaus: Alma, Lucia, Gunta, Otti, Benita and Anni.
Isokon Building for the 19-19 collection
For the creation of '19-19', the designer chose to photograph the collection, at an original, wood panelled apartment at the iconic Isokon building, in Hampstead, London.
Milad Sediqi | Turquoise Mountain Institute | Kabul, Afghanistan
Sediqi's design is titled "My Story" and features a love poem and an apotropiac message. The lines form a weave that represents the directions in which his feelings and creative impulses take him, and his struggles to find an expressive outlet. White represents light and blue Sediqui's blue moods.
