Our undyed wool rugs are made in the Kutch region of Gujarat, India, on a horizontal loom. They are handwoven by a father-and-sons team using the increasingly rare craft of kharad weaving.
The haatho (wooden comb) is hand carved from hardwood and passed down in their family for generations.
The haatho is used to tighten the weave of the rug after each row is made. Big geometric patterns are more difficult to weave than repeat patterns and require eyeing the spacing just right.
Depending on the intricacy of the pattern, each rug takes 1-7 days to weave.
Our flat weave rugs are made by a different father-and-sons team. They have two pit looms they use, one on the roof of their home and one in the front yard.
