Our family has been traveling to the Indian sub-continent for the best part of four decades buying and specifying our purchases of hand-made carpets. The history of weaving in the Bhadohi area of Uttar Pradesh in India goes right back hundreds of years to when the Mogul hordes from Persia overran the northern part of India and what is now Pakistan. Weaving skills were brought to these areas by Persian artisans who settled here after the invasion. They taught the indigenous people these same skills of carpet weaving copying all the various weaving patterns of Persia, Turkey and Turkoman regions. In many ways the Indian weaver is better than his Persian counterpart weaving straight, flat and almost flawless carpets for a fraction of the price. These pieces are mostly Ushak inspired designs in a rustic weave using New Zealand wool, available to Indian weavers being part of the Commonwealth. It is a regular weave using high ply thick yarn to make the knots pack in better. They have a modern distressed look with a low pile. Very inexpensive for a hand knotted rug.
These rugs have a very contemporary style, very distressed finish, very low pile. We are selling these at cost or below, there are no returns or shipping out of the Ottawa region, and we strongly suggest you view the rug at our warehouse before purchasing to satisfy yourself of the look.
This rug contains approximately 365050 knots, and would have taken 61 days to weave and finish.
Every pile rug has a nap so that the pile lies in one direction. This means there is a lighter end and and darker end for each rug which is why there are photographs from both.
