About the Artist

Zuhal Kuvan-Mills’ deep love for the Australian bush, animals and her native land of Turkey is infused in every fibre of her handmade textiles. Using certified organic Western Australian merino & alpaca material, the Atelier Zuhal founder creates highly specialised textile pieces which double as extraordinary pieces of art.

Each textile is a fascinating blend of her many passions. The Perth-based professional artist & designer is inspired by Turkey’s cultural appreciation of rugs and adopts the country’s traditional felt making techniques for her exotic works.

Zuhal also has the distinction of being the first and only Australian artist to be certified for meeting international organic standards for textiles. As each stage–from processing to creative design–must be certified, she produces only about 10 to 12 rugs a year. As a result, her works are incredibly precious and intricate.
