New Delhi, February 2018: OBEETEE, India’s largest luxury carpet maker have partnered with designers Abraham & Thakore to present the ‘Calligraphy Collection’ as a part of ‘Proud to be Indian’ series. Calligraphy is an art with script and has a narrative that has captured the imagination of many in the past. Old handwritten letters, ink faded and smudged, calligraphic strokes evoking times past of human narratives linking the hand and the heart has been the inspiration for this collection. The beauty of this collection lies in the technical virtuosity of a hand knotted carpet, where millions of threads are individually knotted together to create the complex surface of the script in matt and sheen.
The carpets are all hand-knotted using different yarns and finishes. The finest silk has been procured and these rugs are woven with a knot density of about 200 knots per square inch.
These fine carpets tell stories of layers, colours, textures and memory with an intricacy that illustrates the skills of an ancient craft which is still being practised today in India and is weaving together the stories of skilled textile artisans and craftsmen.
Price– Rs. 8100/sq. ft. area.
Availability: Taj Khazana – The Taj Mahal Hotel, 1 Man Singh Road, New Delhi
