Sikkim artisans weave carpets with innovative designs
Jun '09
Artisans in Sikkim are manufacturing carpets with a blend of age-old and new designs to popularize their product in the international markets. The rich culture and tradition of Buddhism appearing in these woolen carpets, mostly woven by women, separates it from rest of the Indian handicrafts.

These carpets have fine textures and they carry beautiful and amazing designs ranging from traditional to the stylish contemporary patterns. These designs are being created with a blend of cotton and wool.

These are completely hand-woven carpets, which are quite difficult to make and due to the fine quality, these carpets are much in demand in domestic as well as international markets.

The artisans are trying to incorporate several contemporary designs and are currently working on orchid designs and are also mulling to include similar kind of other designs such as the Red Panda, other animals and flowers as it's an innovative concept.

Due to this concept the artisans are receiving good response from the tourists and helping handicraft products from Sikkim gain recognition from across the globe which is also encouraging the craftsmen of Sikkim.
