    Kashmir namda long rug: flowers and vines.

    A bright rug lends warmth, beauty and softness to any room, and a namda rug gives an exotic look to a living space with its jewel-like colours and simple patterns. Geometric motifs are repeated to make this lovely rug an example of simple beauty. Kashmir has a historic connection with Persia and central Asia, and a lot of its art bears these influences. These rugs are called namda and are made of rough wool and felt. They are a typical feature of Kashmir, used in every home to keep the warmth underfoot. The art of namda came to India from central Asia and stayed on. Kashmiri craftsmen later started their own embroidery on it, in rich designs and colours. Namda rugs are typically embroidered with a hook, in chain stitch, with floral and geometrical motifs. The wool used retains much of its natural oils and looks creamish/beige. This is not to be mistaken for dust - it is a natural colour. In case of spills, spot cleaning with a carpet cleaner is easy to carry out. These are great for a long passage, and make a lovely Christmas gift - full of handmade warmth. Size L 163cm x W 56cm.

    Kashmir namda long rug: tree of life.

    The tree of life is a common motif in carpets from Persia, and this one is our own tree of life rug. The presence of a tree signifies water, growth, and fecundity — hence it is seen as the tree of life. The elongated motif of the tree of life is woven on shawls and embroidered on rugs all over the world. The tree that survives the cyclic movement of seasons, bending with the wind, unscathed, is seen as the strong and truthful warrior who overcomes all vicissitudes and remains steadfast. Many cultures have their own representation of the tree of life, and each is distinct. Our long rugs are great for a long passage, and make a lovely Christmas gift - full of handmade warmth. Size L 163cm x W 56cm.

    Kashmir namda medium round rug:akarsu (running water).

    We have named this one akarsu, meaning running water. Among all carpet-weaving communities, water, the indispensable element, was associated with life itself, as well as with rituals of purification and renewal. Appearing in many designs, as a triangular, wave or geometric pattern, the water pattern makes for a simple yet elegant border design. It is found in tribal carpets everywhere, from Anatolia to the Caucasus to Persia. Size L 140cm x W 140cm.

    Kashmir namda medium round rug: flowers at my feet.

    Patterns of flowers are almost always used in namda, and this one demonstrates that beautifully. A chinar and tulip pattern makes for an interesting central design, surrounded by a symmetric border. It is difficult to imagine these designs are made by simple peasants in far flung villages - their skill and patience are exemplary. This traditional piece is made using 'aari kaam', meaning the aari embroidery using a single hook. Size L 140cm x W 140cm.

    Kashmir namda medium round rug: gulistan (house of flowers).

    Kashmir rugs are known for symmetry, intricate work and use of colour. This one uses the pattern of flowers as a central medallion, with a circular border of tulips. Kashmir is traditionally hill country, and summers are full of flowers. It is a land of great beauty. The combination of Persian motifs and local flora makes for interesting designs. The most common motif for Persian rugs, especially the larger ones, is a large central medallion. But even if two carpets have basically the same design, no two medallions are ever exactly the same. Some experts believe the medallion designs stems from the very religious nature of the weavers and that their inspiration probably came from the artwork and patterns of domes of the mosques. These also make lovely table decor - spread out as a centrepiece to give it an exotic, handmade touch. Size L 140cm x W 140cm.
