Travelling on the overnight sleeper train for Delhi, we have been waiting months for the temperatures to cool so that we can endure the Indian heat. Leaving the bustling metropolis of the capital and opening our eyes to the Thar desert is a unique experience. Trading vehicles for camels, it’s going from one culture to another. The brilliance of travelling to the desert, particularly during the cooler months, is being able to meet the locals and get to know the people weaving the rugs.
This range of rugs are hand-loomed using marvellously sustainable and environmentally-friendly wool. What’s even greater is that the colour of these rugs is achieved using completely natural wool colours, no dyes are used in the process. The skill required to produce the incredibly subtle speckled effect is breath-taking. The wool is incredibly soft underfoot, and the density produces a heavyweight rug that oozes quality.
