Textiles and Carpets in Rajasthan
The tradition of weaving, dying and printing in Rajasthan dates back many centuries. The kaleidoscopic colors and spectrum of hues used in creating these textiles is mindboggling. The Zari work on the bridal costumes is a sight to behold.
Rajasthan is traditionally well-known for fine-quality hand-knotted woollen carpets. They first began to be manufactured in Rajasthan when weavers from Afghanistan were introduced in the 17th century. Ever since, they have flourished here. Naturally, they are available in the bazaars at a price far lower than they command in stores overseas.
