There is a lot that goes on behind-the-scenes before one of our beautiful rugs becomes a part of a home.
Vimla International is a leading rug design and manufacturing house and has always been at the forefront of international design trends whether it is for hand knotted or hand tufted carpets. Therefore, considerable amount of efforts are spent to create new designs, textures and collections.
The first stage of process is make the white yarn from farm cotton by spinning then this white yarn goes for dying.All the dying is done by hand. The dyes are measured by eye and then added to a vat of boiling water, with the addition of setting agents. The yarn is then plunged in and out of the bubbling hot dye until the correct color is achieved. Then dip through with water and hung to dry in the bright sun.
After the dying and drying yarns comes on plying unit where two ladies Kesar and Puni open the yarns into single thread on Charkha (spinning wheel) then collect this yarn into a ball.

Here is mostly 3 kind of loom first is peddle loom which is done by legs. Second is handloom which is vertical and harder than paddle one. And last one is flat weave loom which is horizontal and hardest to do, only few Weavers can do on flat weave loom.
One rug take 30 to 35 days to have its shape. In this time period rugs get dusty in Rajasthan countryside villages. So now this rug goes to washing unit where our local boys wash it by long brushes.
Now rug is on last step Finishing where local women bind the fringes, cut the piles, add the tassels and pom- poms.
