Our Journey to Jaipur: Handmade Rugs

Ever since Jaipur was painted pink to welcome Queen Victoria in 1876, it has been a city known for its vibrant hues and over-the-top dramatic gestures. Add these compelling personality traits to its already impeccable (and ongoing) reputation as a textile powerhouse, and you’ll see why these were the qualities we looked for in each Rug chosen for our Jaipur Season Collection.

In fact, Jaipur has been recognized for centuries as the go-to destination for intricately woven rugs and hand block-printed masterpieces. So much more than decor for your floor, our Jaipur Season Rugs pay homage to ancient traditional craftsmanship and timeless beauty. Read on for more about how each of our handmade rugs is an unmistakable expression of Jaipur’s passion for statement-making style.
