The Origin and Unique Beauty of Chindi Rugs
Inspired by the rich traditions of Indian heritage, our skilled craftsmen and women weave each Chindi Rug with love, passion, and unparalleled expertise, resulting in a one-of-a-kind piece. This traditional crafting technique, known as “Chindi” in Hindi, translates directly to “Rags.” In the Western world, these mats are commonly referred to as Rag Rugs. Made from recycled fabrics such as scarves, saris, and dresses, each rug is handmade using a range of bright and vibrant tones, bringing a splash of color and a touch of bohemian flair to any room.
Uniquely Handcrafted Rag Rugs
Our rugs are created by expertly hand-weaving torn strips of cloth, ensuring the utmost beauty and durability. Using a variety of bold colors and fabrics, from cotton to viscose, we skillfully craft the perfect rug for you. By repurposing unwanted fabrics and preventing them from ending up in landfills, our Chindi Rugs offer an eco-friendly alternative to standard utility mats. These fabrics are carefully washed and cut into strands before being woven together on traditional handlooms, a technique that dates back over 5000 years in India.
India remains one of the few countries that directly produces textiles from master weavers. Remarkably, Indian handlooms account for 95% of the handwoven fabrics in the world, providing employment for approximately 4.4 million weaver-families. Preserving the art of hand-weaving and the loom process is crucial in a world where technology constantly evolves. We should all recognize and appreciate the value of expertly crafted handmade products.

Caring for Your Chindi Rug
To ensure that your rug lasts a lifetime, we recommend against machine washing. Instead, opt for light vacuuming or spot-cleaning with minimal water. Occasionally, you may notice loose threads due to the handmade nature of the rug. Simply snip these threads with scissors to prevent further damage and maintain the rug’s integrity.
