The beauty and turbulence of Kashmir is captured in the region's signature handicrafts. While sarees and shawls of the widely coveted pashmina make abound, we also make it a point to add to our collection a handful of the latest rugs each season. These emerge from the famous handlooms that dot the valley, the skill for which lies within each inter-generational family of Kashmiri weavers. This sturdy yet luxuriantly patterned rug is one such example of Kashmiri handiwork. Made from a cotton foundation superimposed with superfine silk embroidery, these beauteous rugs have evolved to carpet Kashmiri homes with both warmth and aesthetics in the height of the Himalayan winter.
This rug features knotted flowers, a signature speciality of the Orient. Done painstakingly by hand, this technique yields exquisite results as could be seen in this carpet - singular patterns (a wide variety of local flora), intense colours, and a texture to die for. Note the dense ivory tassels along the breadth of this rug that set off the earthy colour palette of the field. Zooming in on each surface area unit would enable you to appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of each element of the pattern. Clothe your floors in this gorgeous Kashmiri rug to add to your space the elusive charm of the Orient.
