Designers: Tania & Sandeep Khosla in collaboration with Jaipur Rugs
The indigenous and ritualistic folk art of South India “Kolam” has inspired this series of hand knotted carpets. People in South India, create patterns from rice flour at the entrance of the homes. These patterns are created by drawing lines and loops around a primary network of dots and this is what Kolam is all about.
While preserving the sacrosanct symmetry in individual forms, the designers break free from traditional rules creating unexpected and joyful studies in colour and form, richly layered and dynamic in composition.
The designers converted the short-lived quality of Kolam into permanent with each hand woven knot, through the weaving process.
In this collaboration with Jaipur Rugs, Graphic Designer Tania Singh Khosla and Architect Sandeep Khosla explore the handmade traditions of India, negotiating aesthetics and influences, creating designs that are graphic, bold and beautifully crafted.

Jaipur Wunderkammer by Matteo Cibic
Designer: Matteo Cibic
This exquisite collection is born out of collaboration between Jaipur Rugs and Italian designer Matteo Cibic. During his visit to Jaipur, Cibic got so fascinated by the colours and architecture of the city that he combined his creative sensibilities with the local heritage and culture in this collection. He got inspired by everything is saw in the city – ancient paintings, architecture etc and this is clearly reflects in this collection.
The collection is named after Wunderkammer also known as cabinets of curiosities that came into existence in the mid-16th century in Europe. These room-like cabinets were repositories for all types of wondrous and exotic objects.
The handcrafted rugs in this vibrant collection take you to an experiential trip to Rajasthan and give you a peek into its culture.
They say that ideas are a dime a dozen, but are those ideas fully formed? No, most ideas are thoughts without full clarity. The Genesis collection is a play on those ideas, ones with a clear origin but without a clear future. Hand-tufted in rural India, the collection acts as a platform where pastel colors and vague shapes coexist with the hopes of blending into a concrete idea
Project Error By Kavi

Drawing inspiration from the crossroads of nature and machine, works of art emerge as new, spontaneous and unique designs. Made of hand processed wool and bamboo silk each rug employs 180 artisans to create these exquisite rugs.
