From March 13, Wild Heart Free Soul has the honor of participating in the Museum Shop Barberini as a representative of Anatolian craftsmanship. The Barberini museum shop has curated a special selection of "oriental" products for the "Rembrandt's Orient" exhibition. A fine selection of our vintage kilims and kilim cushions is available here until June 27, 2021.

Excerpt from the blog post by the Barberini Museum Shop:

"Rembrandt's Orient - the view of the 17th century. "Orient" in Rembrandt's time could mean many things. Ceramics from Japan or China, miniatures from the Mughal Empire in the area of today's India or "Batavia" the name for the Dutch East Indies, today's Indonesia with its capital Jakarta But is our concept of "Orient" much more precise?When we talk about oriental cuisine, which cuisine do we mean?

So we went in search of creative people from countries that are commonly associated with the "Orient" and entrepreneurs who migrate between cultures. We found young founders such as Beyza Özler from Berlin. With Wild Heart Free Soul she has specialized in kilims from the 40s to the 70s. In "normal" times, she travels through Turkey several times a year to select the most beautiful pieces, which are then carefully cleaned and restored. For Beyza Özler, kilims are woven poetry and each piece tells its own story. Wild Heart Free Soul as a guest at the Barberini Shop in the Museum Barberini, Potsdam from March 13th."
