The journey of this luxury piece from a silk worm into a moth into the finest piece of flooring is indeed worth narrating. Veils of fine silk threads in coveted colours get hand woven in a large Karkhana where skilled artists from the valley weave warps and wefts of convulated knots with the help of a self designed talim. After 150 long artisan days and the meticulous efforts of a single skilled weaver for 5 months, what comes to life is a carpet, inspired by the traditional prayer mat, hosting flowers - an ode to Kashmiri Mughal gardens in full bloom.
Art Handknotted is an initiative of Kashmir Box with an acclaimed artisan family, and together we bring exquisite handmade, hand-knotted in pure Mulberry silk, works of art. Shahnawaz has been at the forefront of reimagining the dying craft of carpets. This exclusive collection is a testament not only for the revival of this craft but also its modern-day evolution as the artisan uses modern techniques and designs to help sustain the Kaalbafi (r carpet making) craft and take it back to the glory where it was once.
Carpet weaving was introduced in Kashmir by King Budshah in late 15th century. It is believed that he brought master artisans from Persia to improvise over the spinning and weaving capabilities of artisans, thus introducing the beautiful carpet weaving into the traditional arts of Kashmir. Carpet making in Kashmir is pure art and the quality depends upon the number of knots used in its making. Each carpet is woven based on a design visualized by a designer and its corresponding Talim which the weaver follows while crafting the piece of art Kashmir Box – Carpet Collection
