Korpe is a futon made of traditional patchwork technique - “quraq”. It is a multifunctional piece of the interior. When there are many guests, instead of owning a set of chairs the host can unfold several körpes to form a perimeter of seats. Due to its ornamental design it becomes part of a decoration in one’s room. Very practical solution for modern living, too.

Körpe in this collection is made of silk velvet - “bahmal”, traditional handmade velvet made by artisans in Uzbekistan. It’s 90% silk and 10% cotton, which makes it a luxurious tactile experience.

Quraq (patchwork) is designed to recycle leftover cotton from the local textile manufacturer. The filling inside is made of 100% wool from Kazakhstan.

Inspiration behind AIKEN collections

Authentic, sophisticated and tactile, are the first things that come to mind while discovering contemporary designs created by Kazakhstani artisans in the heart of Central Asia. Providing a unique sensory experience through the conflict of textures, AIKEN helps you to reconnect with your feelings and live through a spiritual grounding encounter.

AIKEN's DNA

In all of my creations, I reflect on the cultural heritage of my ancestors  - Kazakh nomads. The nomadic lifestyle is about multifunctional practicality. I'd like to enhance people’s tactile senses as an antidote to our screen lives, bring them together in communities, and share authentic sustainable practices from steppe nomads. - Aigerim Akenova.
