Indian Rugs Online

If you want to find a quality Indian rug online, be sure to look for carpets that are not manufactured by children in squalid conditions. Look for a vendor that offers rugs made by adults who were trained in the art of weaving and who are paid for their labor. You will be pleased with the Indian carpets you will find, and, in some cases, part of your purchase price will help to pay for the elimination of child labor in the carpet industry in India.

That said, quality rugs from India can be a beautiful addition to your home or business decor. With hundreds of designs to choose from, you will be able to select from a variety of styles, thread counts, and knots per square meter. You will find that Indian rugs are similar in style to Persian rugs with natural colors, small motifs repeated throughout the rug, and very little color contrast.

Indian Rugs Styles

Exquisite Indian carpets are sometimes made by hand-tying every knot. They can also be made from materials such as felted goat hair and white fleece from sheep. The rugs are hand embroidered, often taking a month or more to complete, depending on the size of the rug.

Indian carpets go very well with antique furniture, with their muted colors and intricate patterns. They also make striking tapestries and come in a number of sizes that are suited to wall or floor. Selecting a shape, size, and pattern that will fit your decor is far easier when you're searching the Internet and can compare styles and prices quickly. When shopping online for fine rugs, don't forget that online vendors offer sales as frequently as your local stores, and many times the sales come with free shipping and a money back satisfaction guarantee.
