Harald Böhmer

Harald Böhmer is a man of tremendous accomplishments. A chemist long acquainted with Turkey, he undertook basic research on traditional dyeing methods in Turkish carpets that led to one of the most significant developments in carpet-weaving of the past 100 years. After almost a century in which industrial dyes often blighted carpet production, today traditionally dyed carpets are woven in many parts of the Islamic world. Böhmer’s mission to revive traditional dyeing has led in turn to more sophisticated tastes and a new appreciation of contemporary carpets using traditional colours.
