JAN KATH IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT CARPET DESIGNERS ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE. HIS CARPETS CAN BE FOUND EVERYWHERE – IN THE HOMES OF ARABIAN ROYALTY, IN THE WASHINGTON RESIDENCE OF FORMER US PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON, IN THE VILLA OF ROCK STAR ANTHONY KIEDIS IN HAWAII, IN PRIVATE SUITES AT THE “FOUR SEASONS” IN CAIRO, ON THE LUXURY YACHTS OF MULTINATIONAL OIL CONGLOMERATES AND IN THE SHOWROOMS OF IMPORTANT PARISIAN FASHION LABELS.
The carpets are hand-woven in the Himalayas, in Agra, the ancient Mogul capital in India, or in the Atlas mountains of Morocco
in line with centuries-old traditions and at manufacturing sites that are often still run as small family businesses.
It takes three to four months to weave a carpet.
