Afghan Folklore for Nodus

With my new design for Nodus in collaboration with artisans of Afghanistan, I explore the folklore of the culture through the medium of tapestry. Inspired by the vibrant life of Afghan culture, I incorporated certain elements such as beautiful dresses with traditional patterns and a symphony of instruments into the design, and paired them together with my own whimsical style. The Afghanartisans use a very special technique of tapestry which brings the design to life with sharp detail down to the last thread. In my previous collaboration with Nodus, I sought to bring Japanese folklore together with the heritage of Nodus, which has long stood for quality and the bridging of East and West. With this new collaboration, I hope to bring happiness to living spaces with the joyful imagery of Afghan folklore and the craftsmanship of the country’s artisans. Jaime Hayon.
