This vibrant numdha felt rug is handmade from sheep wool from Rajasthan and combined with finer wool from Kashmir, then embellished with animal motifs using a traditional wool crewel embroidery technique. Numdha rugs are made through a process of rubbing layers of wool with water and soap. This bonding of wool fibres is called felting and is a process which is hundreds of years old. It takes one full day to complete this felting process. Handmade by skilled artisans working with Zanana Dastkari Production Markaz, one of our fair trade partners in India.
This product is best suited for wooden or similar floors. Not recommended for use on carpet. Colour may rub. Keep out of direct sunlight as may cause fading.
