Carpet weaving is an art that has been alive in India in one form or another since time immemorial. Earlier, it was present in the traditional Indian style of Dhurrie-making and later, in the style inspired by other traditional forms of carpet making around the world. There is a long beautiful history behind this art form and it has taken the effort of lakhs of artisans to keep this industry thriving.
At first, there were only handmade carpets and skilled artisans who made them. The Indian vintage rugs you see now are the products of those times.
