Origin of Chindi Rugs
Inspired by Indian heritage and rich tradition, our craftsmen and women weave each and every Chindi Rug with love, passion and dedicated excellence, making every piece unique.
Originally a traditional crafting technique commonly used in India, the Hindi word “Chindi” directly translates to “Rags”.
That is why in the Western World, these mats are most commonly referred to as a Rag Rug.
This decorative rug is beautifully handmade with a range of bright and vibrant tones, giving a splash of colour and a touch of bohemian flair to any room in the house.
Each rag rug is truly unique
We use recycled fabrics, from scarfs, saris, dresses and more, to craft our rugs. For generations, these torn strips of cloth have been expertly hand-woven to create gorgeous floor mats and wall hangings.
Using a range of bright and bold colours and different fabrics from cotton to viscose, we masterfully make the perfect rug for you.
By deliberately stopping these unwanted fabrics from going to landfill, this rug offers an eco-friendly alternative to a standard utility mat.
These fabrics are washed and cut into strands before being roughly yet securely woven together using traditional handlooms. Hand weaving in India dates back more than 5000 years.
India is now one of the only countries that produces textiles directly from its master weavers.
Remarkably, Indian handlooms hold 95% of the handwoven fabrics in the world and provides employment to approximately 4.4 million weaver-families. It is the second largest employer after agriculture.
As the world develops and technologies evolve and advance, it is vital that the hand-weaving and the loom process is not lost. We should all appreciate the value of expertly crafted handmade products.

How to care for a Chindi Rug
We want to make sure that your rugs last a lifetime. Therefore, we would advise against machine washing your Chindi Rugs.
Light vacuuming or spot-cleaning is the best approach when caring for your Chindi Rug. When spot cleaning, use only the required amount of water needed to clean the area in need of care.
Being hand-woven you may experience some threads coming loose after constant use. This is a normal occurrence and not a manufacturing defect.
We would advise that you snip any loose threads with scissors, rather than pulling so that no further damage is done to the rug.
So why not check out our Chindi Rugs for yourselves? Remember, you will receive a multi coloured rug but colours may vary slightly from the listing photograph due the uniqueness of every individual item.
