RUGS You found them at

These friendly flat weave rugs are soft and chunky, feel almost like wool, but are actually robust 100% cotton.

The «white» version is made with unbleached and undyed cotton – nothing added, nothing taken away. In fact these rugs are so close to natural cotton you can often see remnants of raw cotton seeds still embedded in the yarn.

The cotton is grown nearby to the weavers' society, and by avoiding bleaching our cotton retains its natural and comforting mellow colour – very different from those cold, mass-produced rugs you might have seen elsewhere.

Here the texture features the warmth of natural tones: slightly creamy-yellow hues, perhaps even occasional hints of grey.

These are individually hand woven rugs from the far north of India. They are made in stunning surroundings in a steep valley overlooking the Ganges, in a place where India begins its ascent into the Himalaya.

Loving respect for natural materials by our spinners and weavers is responsible for the distinctive feel.
They hand spin the raw cotton before starting on the weaving.

Expect character.... Each rug is unique and full of texture.

Unbleached white. The neutral colour can make these rugs feel just right anywhere in the home.

Quality materials and the excellent technical structure should make your rug, with reasonable care, good company for years.

Although always brown, the density and tone of brown varies from one rug to another and might be lighter or darker than the illustration shown here.


Narrow borders at each end
give each rug three distinct shades.
Because each rug is artisan made
expect subtle colour variations
across your particular rug.
Your rug will be unique in the world;
there will be no other exactly like it!

Please understand that some size and colour variation is a characteristic of hand craft; colour accuracy online also depends in part on the colour calibration of computers and monitors.

Delight in texture not only in the yarns and weaving, but also the texture in the colour.
These rugs are yarn dyed and by hand, resulting in uneven texture of colour across the rug.

With care, these coloured rugs are also washable
(but please take care to follow the washing instructions above).
