Namdha Of Kashmir

A hand made felt rug that makes excellent floor covering, made of unspun wool or wool and cotton pressed and felted in specific proportions, the rug originally came from Yarkand, Sinkiang and stayed to become an indigenous craft. The felt is embroidered with a hook in bold designs and assortment of colours. The sizes range from 2'x3', 3'x4', 4'x6' to 6'x9' feet and 3',4',5' 6' dia in round shape. The quality depends upon percentage of wool in the felt, popularly made quality is 32% wool, 50% wool and 100% wool.

Far less expensive are these colourful floor coverings made from woollen and cotton fibre which have been manually pressed into shape. Prices vary with the percentage of wool - a namdha containing 80 per cent wool being more expensive than the one containing 20 per cent wool. Chain-stitch embroidery in woollen and cotton thread is executed on these rugs
