In India, rug-making has always been the province of men. Our commitment to women’s empowerment led us to an innovative rug supplier in India that balances the traditional male role in textiles with a corresponding operation employing female artisans.
Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. India was the second largest textile exporter in the world in 2013. Imagine Home was fortunate to spend time on the ground with these remarkable artisans and collaborate on a line of rugs that combines high design with traditional craftsmanship.
