Chaochangdi is a village which has been developed into a centre for the arts and is home to several of the world’s top art galleries. Some of China’s most influential artists, including Ai Weiwei and Zeng Fanzhi, have based their studio/galleries there. HANRAD found that the connection with art and artists was so inspiring that it led to collaborations, which led us to expand our love for textile art to the development of an art rug collection.
