Carpets on paintings
This has never been done in the world of carpet-making before. The complexity of the image requires a meticulous preciseness of color and hand technique. For most of the pieces, over 150 colors are used and the numbers of hand-knots per piece varies between 480 000 to 780 000 knots.
The pieces on display are for sale. Sales that occur as a result of the event will launch a fund for vocational training, which aims to bring sustainable employment for disadvantaged but very talented women in the Rhodopes.
