If you're redecorating or looking to bring some life to your home's decor, a new rug will bring any room together in a functional but stylish way. But finding the right rug can seem a little daunting. You want to be sure that the rug you purchase compliments your decor, is functional for your space, and is practical in terms of maintenance.
Two of the most popular rug brands on the market currently are Jaipur and Loloi. Below, we’ll highlight some key details of each brand so you can make a more informed investment in your new area rug!
Known as the original rug makers, Jaipur rugs originated in the late 1970’s and is headquartered in India. Its artisans produce rugs that are shipped and distributed to over 60 countries worldwide, with a major branch located right here in the United States.
As innovators in the rug industry and with a commitment to humanitarian values, Jaipur works directly with artisans helping them earn a sustainable livelihood. An added benefit to hands-on artisanship is traceability. Through the Postcard Project, the company is able to connect you to the artisan who wove your specific rug. Additionally, Jaipur established the Jaipur Rugs Foundation (JRF) in 2004, creating over 50,000 jobs for the people of rural India. JRF offers healthcare, education, financial inclusion, and skill development programs to underserved communities.
Tradition Meets Modern
Jaipur’s hand-knotted rugs can take between 3 and 12 months to make, each one as unique as the people who make them—and the people they are making them for. Modernizing traditional Persian techniques, the rugs in all of Jaipur’s collections are simultaneously unique and timeless. One technique in particular sets Jaipur’s rugs apart from the rest – Gultarash. This technique translates directly to mean “finding the flower.” The purpose of it is to highlight patterns and details within the rug’s design, and to create added texture.
