Fine silk and flowing cotton stretched lengthwise on tables - each end accompanied by a craftsmen working meticulously with finely carved wooden blocks and dyes; women in homes sewing on mirrors and sequins, fastened with colored threads; wax being dripped onto the finest cotton to mask off the dye – textiles of the Indian subcontinent are a world of their own and we at Carpetandtextile.com are the portal to it.
We bring to you textiles from remote rural areas in India, varying from block printed silk and cottons, applique embroidered and quilted materials for home furnishings, to batik, tie and dye and hand worked fabric for garments and wall hangings. Carpetandtextile.com is a family run business, and our twenty five year experience in the area of fabric and durries of India gives us a great advantage in the field.
Not only do we assure unmatched quality of every product, but we also have sound knowledge of what we are offering to our consumers – be it the handmade printed silks, the natural vegetable dyes used in staining the cloth or the fact that the cloth itself is woven from 100% natural silken, cotton and woolen fibers.
While the finesse, elegance and durability of the cloth lies in the fact that men and women who have been passed down this art from generations above them spend hours and days and months spinning and weaving the cloth itself, these handmade as well as natural fiberedtextiles are complemented beautifully by the permanent yet wholly natural vegetable, metal oxide and stone pigment based stains that are used to give the surface those brilliant hues.
Our textiles aren’t just pieces of cloth stitched at the right places, in fact we pride ourselves in the history and development of the craft itself. Removing the middle man from the equation, we have direct access to the craftsmen and we work as much on satisfying their needs as we do yours. Textile export markets are one of the most sustainable ways to empower the artisans of rural India, provided that the company gives back to the source. Recognizing the value of these skilled individuals who are nothing less than trained professionals and helping them become financially independent is one of our aims as the Carpetandtextile.com family.
