Hands-on exhibits showing the production of carpets at the Museum of Islamic Art, Pergamon-Museum in Berlin
How are carpets made? Obviously, you take a couple of colourful threads and weave them together. But how? Our new exhibit in the Museum of Islamic Art in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum shows how it’s done. Knotted or woven? Symmetrical or asymmetrical knots? The visitors were invited to see and feel their way through the differences in carpet manufacture.
