American designer Haynes Robinson connects across time and culture with the women of wandering Persian tribes and the shepherds who sleep under stars and work in the open air. Robinson calls to these revered weavers with his contemporary designs. They respond with their interpretations. Wool is gathered from local flocks. It is worked and spun by hand. Pomegranate, walnut, and madder – the wool is steeped in sensuous colors coaxed from local fruits and flowers. Then, the women knot and weave each composition with their hands, improvising and elaborating on Robinson's themes, shining primal spirits on the work. Sahar carpets are collaborative creations: spontaneous, direct, organic and authentic.
