Construction



The latest carpet in the series is titled Construction and celebrates the construction culture that has remained a significant part of the identity of Doha throughout the last twenty years. This carpet was designed by Maryam Al Homaid.
    Patterns of Human Behavior is a series of hand-made carpets used as a mechanism to document unconventional cultural patterns, local identities, and urban behaviors. Each of these carpets is carefully hand-made preserving the traditional islamic carpet practices of preparing local wool, hand-dyeing the fiber with natural ingredients, and hand-tying the design one knot at a time.
The series was conceived of by Levi Hammett, based on a previous research project by Levi Hammett & Pornprapha Phatanateacha. The carpet motifs were developed in collaboration with Qatari designer and artist Maryam Al Homaid.
