About the Product
Woven carpets have been fashioned by Bangladeshi artisans for centuries, as a symbolic decoration or to enrich a ceremony. The item here is woven in the style of Asian carpets, fabricated by an American artisan who’s not unlike Dipu, whom Raisa and companions meet in Destination Dhaka. With your purchase here, you support an ancient artform and those who practice it. Just like Raisa receives a woven carpet at the end of the excursion book, so too can the special child in your life!
Woven carpets are generally made from cotton thread or cloth strips. They come in a number of sizes, colors, and patterns. They utilize simple tools. They are finished through tying off the thread or fabric. These woven carpets are great as “mug rugs” under your favorite beverage. Commissioned or purchased fair trade. Resold responsibly.
