The art of hand-weaving.
Each loom is worked by 4-5 strong operatives, who move the wooden frames by hand and heddles by pedals to cross the yarn warps over long metal rods to create the pile. A traditional shuttle is thrown from left to right and back to interweave the cotton weft.

Preparing the warp
This is a crucial stage in the hand-weaving process. Small bobbins are wound around a large warping wheel to create long threads that form the basis of carpet production. The warping wheel takes at least four operatives to wind, at any given time, to ensure no threads become tangled #handwovencarpets #handwovenrugs #jacarandacarpets #jacarandarugs #luxurydesign #carpetsandrugs

Winding the bobbins
Every part of the art of handmade carpet production, requires time and skill, for example, yarn is wound onto bobbins with each bobbin taking approx. 10 minutes to wind. Each roll of carpet requires around 1,200 bobbins, so it takes approx. 200 hours to wind enough yarn for just one roll of carpet.

Handmade carpets & rugs in Northern India
Using traditional techniques to hand-weave carpets or rugs produces high quality character pieces of natural beauty, which cannot be matched by machine. Hand-weaving broadloom is a truly time-consuming art that requires skill and quality control to make flaw-free rolls of carpet by hand.
