Indian (Bhadohi) carpets are beautiful hand woven rugs that capture and tell the history of an entire culture. Great care is taken in their production and the hard work and labour put in result in an amazing tapestry of talent. Expect to see repeating designs and patterns with a subtle use of colour to evoke a sense of history and bring a touch of culture to the home. Carpets from India are famous for their high density of knotting. Hard-knotted carpets are popular in India and are a signature marking of Indian weavers. Since the 11th Century when carpet weaving was introduced into India, the industry has been growing and improving. Today Indian weavers are well known for their presentation of realistic attributes and their attention to detail. The northern part of India, especially around BHADOHI is where the Indian carpet industry in centered. The carpet export market has directly benefitted many of the underprivileged in the region and helped to improve some levels of poverty and unemployment there. By purchasing an Indian made carpet, not only are you bringing a conversation-starting showpiece into your home, you’re also helping those in need.
