Rug shopping in India

Jump to last reply

As some of you may know, we're heading to India in December.

In a parallel universe (at home), we're on the hunt for an area rug for our living room and a little bird has told me that we're traveling to the proverbial nucleus of amazing rugs when we go to India.

Ironically enough, all of our favorite rugs that we've been looking at so far (mostly bamboo silk rugs) have been made in India--but their price tag here is way beyond our means. I have no idea if rugs made in India, in general, are far more affordable (once you factor in shipping) but I definitely have hope.

Given all the places we'll be visiting, where is the best place -- at least that we've got in our itineary -- in India to shop for an area rug? We'll be in Delhi, Jodhpur, Narlai, Udaipur, Agra, Varanasi and a few places in Kerala.

Of course, any specific shop recommendations are always appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
