Standard floor carpet prices in India are hard to predict as there are a multitude of factors that influence the same, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fair idea for what you are in for.
First we have the work that goes into the carpet. Depending on the detail, hours of work and whether or not it was vintage, the floor carpet prices in India can fluctuate greatly. Simple shaggy hand tufted carpets can be bought at less than a $100, but top of the food chain finely knotted one can stretch to an extravagant $1500 with a very high knot density, fine wool or silk and a touch of antiquity. That isn’t all, floor carpet prices in India can also be pulled up or down by the trade and export scenario of the market.
Hand tufted carpets are a lot less time consuming to make and they give the artisan a lot of freedom outside the grid to explore designs that are asymmetrical, abstract and often narrative. Hence prices of these are almost entirely dependent on the size and value of the natural fiber used.
Hand knotted carpets on the other hand can take from a few months to several years to complete! The immense detail, the laborious work put in by the artisan, the fine woolen threads that are spun and dyed – each play a role in the price of a high value hand knotted Persian influenced Indian carpet.
