collection of carpets by Sergey Makhno & Ihor Havrylenko
*Niwa [ ukr. нива - lea ] - home for harvest; place of traditions.
*Niwa [ jap. 庭 - garden ] - home for wild plants and spiritual animals; place of harmony.
This collection of designer carpets is about two worlds: flora and fauna / about two cultures: Japanese and Ukrainian.
Little Japanese monkey on the background
of Ukrainian traditional ornaments
Their common features are sanctity,
familiality and sincerity
Protecting its home and family
Symbiosis of living cultures
Look at leaves and stones,
at sprouts and lava
Place yourself in shadows of trees
Different sides of world - different climate,
different flowers - different nations
