In the mystique state of Kashmir in the North Indian Himalayan region, no matter poor or rich, it is traditional to sit on the floor and the floor can get really cold in the Himalayan region of Kashmir. Namdas, made of sheep wool - hand felted and embroidered, are not only decorative rug, but also the best answer to cold floors and great for beautiful floor seating arrangements. How about using it for your cozy boho bedroom corner? You will love the "natural feeling" of it!

This one of a kind Namda rug base is dyed with veg. colors in white and embroidered with woolen threats in a traditional Kashmiri floral design. The color combination is amazing and this one of a kind rug will be an eye-catcher in your home.

Size is approximately 7 x 5 feet
(please note: the Namdas are never perfectly rectangular or straight)
Material: Sheep wool embroidered with veg. dyed woolen threats
This specific rug is very special due to the "full embroidery" it takes around 4-5 weeks to create an embroidered felt rug like this.

The story of a traditional "Namda" :

Pure sheepwool , from the mountain area of Kashmir, is collected, cleaned and dyed. Then woolen flakes are spread evenly on a jute mat (minimum 3 layers of dyed and natural - like a sandwich), then sprinkled with soap water. The mat is then rolled tightly , tied up and compressed bx rolling it on the floor with the help of hands and feet for a long time. The ready plain Namda is then dry washed by the local women and finally embroidered by hand with the Aari (needle hook), traditionally floral designs are used but also geometric and more modern designs are possible.
