We are at a very old Oriental Rug Manufacturing Plant in Bhadohi India. From hand selecting the spun rug fiber, to transporting the dyed wool fiber prior to being woven into a rug nothing much has changed in decades. Honoring centuries old traditions these Master rug craftsmen carry on the art of their Fathers. Most of these workers have many generations of rug artisans going before them. From Father to son these skills are being continually passed along to the next generations.


Area rugs from the Orient are generally less than full room size as we see in the first image. Although depending upon your desire we have larger full sized area rugs available as we see in the second picture below. These rugs may either be hand woven and knotted as shown below from the Bodia plant in India, or produced by more modern machine methods in other rug plants around the Middle East and India.
