Story Behind the Art This rug was created in the Varanasi region of India, in the Bhadohi village, by Mahmood Alam and his family. Everyone in the family helps out, from his wife, Shakiba, to the youngest daughter, Jamila. Prior to making the rugs, they process, wash, spin and dye the wool. The weaving technique is hand-tufted, a process where weavers insert yarn with a hand held tufting gun to push and pull the threads through a pre-woven grid foundation. A backing is attached to protect the stitches. In a tufted rug, the tops of the loops are sheared to expose the ends of the threads for a softer, plusher pile.

Tip: We recommend the use of a non-skid pad to keep the rug in place on smooth surfaces.
