More than any other craft or art form, the handmade rug has survived the onslaught of industrialization and is now in greater demand than ever, and at The Carpets Asia one can witness a range of hand woven hand knotted masterpieces, carefully selected and acquired for their uniqueness and brilliant draughtmanship for over 25 years by a single family.
What began as a nomadic craft ages ago, still continues among some tribes as well as in mechanised factories the world over. However, the importance beauty of the antique oriented carpets above all have been understood.
Mr. Mukesh Mathur private collection at The Carpets Asia reveals the range of styles and designs that the words oriental carpet stand for.

The style of knotting whether Silk or Woolen and the superior quality of raw materials used, ensures that the rugs get better with usage. The use of natural dyes by secret techniques using berries, plants, fruit, bark, fungi and in some rare pieces - crushed insects allows for colours that not only stay fast but give a pleasing harmonious effect unequalled by chemical dyes.
Often borrowed by leading museums from around the world for exhibitions, these carpets are unique pieces - each in its own frame, with its own subtlety complexity. Some carpets represent gardens to remind the user of the pleasures of paradise, or of spring, while they kept the floor warm in winter, others depict hunting scenes, floral animal motifs and geometrical lattice patterns. There are still others with verses found in borders, culled from works of leading poets or composed by unknown writers for a particular carpet.
Whatever the dreams vision of the craftmen or the reasons for which these rugs were woven which range from trade, dowry, prayer, commissioning by aristocrats or a simple need to cover a tent floor, each piece is most handsomely designed and conceived.
From the finest classic carpets of the Mughal Time in India, to the wonderful varieties and charming textures of the Indian carpets to further still the kilims, saddlebags and ornamentation of camels horses during ceremonial occasions, The Carpets Asia is a rare representation of the art of oriental weaving at its best.
