Rahim Walizada is an Afghan born designer who returned to Kabul in 2004 after having lived in New York since he had been forced to leave Afghanistan.

He has since established a presence in both art, and design, fusing traditional carpet craft design with both the conceptuality and aesthetics of contemporary art.

Walizada’s works have been widely exhibited including at the 2005 Venice Biennale and at the Hannover Rug Show, the leading international forum of its kind, where he won the prize for best designer of the year 2011
