Carpets & Namdas

Unlike the legendary Aladdin's Carpet, the carpets from Kashmir do not soar high in the air but they definitely take the beholder to an era bygone. Handcrafted carpets are truly a pride of an Indian home and are increasingly becoming popular worldwide. Though carpet weaving arrived in India with the Mughals, the craft flourished and evolved in Kashmir and today, Kashmir has become the hub for high quality Traditional Indian Carpets & Rugs. The designs have been inspired by the Persian style but they beautifully display an exclusive Indian charm.

The carpets from Kashmir are known for the intricate and delicate handwork done on them. Besides, they are world famous for two things - firstly, they are hand made and secondly, they are always knotted, never tufted. The knotting of the carpet is one of the most important aspects that determine its durability and value, in addition to its design. The more knots per square inch, the greater its value and durability. The colours of Kashmiri carpets are subtler than muted; the yarn (either: silk, wool or a combination of both) is dyed using vegetable colors.

NAMDAS - an inexpensive item of décor from Kashmir
The ancient art of felting wool into namdas came from Yarkand. Namdas are a kind of mattress, originally from the state of Jammu and Kashmir. These are made by felting the wool rather than weaving it. Low quality wool mixed with a small quantity of cotton is used to manufacture namdas. Chain stitch embroidery in woolen and cotton thread is worked on these rugs.

Types of namdas
Namdas are usually of two types, plain and embroidered. Formerly, woolen yarn was used for embroidery, but now acrylic yarn (cashmelon) is in use. Namdas and gabbas are embroidered with thread, which gives color, beauty and strength to them. This cottage industry is concentrated in Anantnag, Rainawari and Baramula regions of Kashmir.

Factors determining the pricing of namdas
Prices of Namdas depend upon their quality of wool, pattern (plain or embroidery), size of the product and the neatness in designs. Far less expensive are these colorful floor coverings made from woolen and cotton fiber, which has been manually pressed into shape. Prices vary with the percentage of wool- a Namda containing 80% wool being more expensive than one containing 20% wool.
