Using this vintage Keepall as a canvas, Jay Ahr presents a special interpretation of the Persian carpet.
The most celebrated expression of craftsmanship from one of our most ancient civilizations, the Persian carpet has come to symbolize heritage, creativity, hospitality and travel. Jay Ahr's signature distressed embroidery technique references the Pazyryk Carpet, the oldest known carpet in the world. Here we see the khaki to white rendition.
