Nothing like a statement handloom rug from India to add some personality to your space. This sturdy, luxuriantly knotted number would be a great pick. Its pure cotton foundation gives it much-needed sturdiness, while the sheer variety of skilfully knotted flowers in the foreground oozes with traditional glamour. Kashmir has been the home of such signature rugs of the Orient, the exclusive artistry for which has evolved over generations of professional weaver families. In fact, the skill that has gone into the gorgeous silk embroidery as well as the kind of flora that has been reproduced in the pattern are both endemic to the valley.
The ivory tassels along the breadth of this rug bring out the flush of earthy tones and pastels that make up the colour palette. The one-of-a-kind floral and rangoli-esque motifs are best appreciated by zooming in on each of the delicately edged panels, separated by strips of the pristine foundation. They are made through the signature knotting technqiue of the Orient, using threads of silk against the cotton foundation. One could spend hours chilling indoors on this beauty, beating the winter with a large fire and gazing at the handiwork of Kashmiri artisans.
