Hands’ contemporary, hand-knotted carpet collection called ‘Cryptos’, features nine varied designs
January 6, 2020: ‘Hands’, founded in 1881, in Bhadohi near Varanasi, is housed in some of the world’s most prestigious palaces, luxury hotels, and residences. Introducing new collections every season, their recent launch called ‘Cryptos’ is completely custom-made, designed, sized, and crafted around a unique, personal expression.
The new Cryptos collection features designs shrouded in mysteries, with secrets and cryptic messages at their core. Beautifully hand-knotted in 100% botanical silk, each carpet is a distinctive, elegant expression of luxury, brought alive through an infinite interplay of pile height variances, colours, textures, patterns, and compositions. The collection features nine designs. Woven by artisans, Hands carpets have an artistic harmony that seems to bind the soul of the weaver to the rug.
“With a peculiar element of intrigue to it,” says Mr Ravi Patodia, Managing Director, “each design tells a unique tale, whose origin lies rooted in mythology or history. A carpet must do nothing less than enhancing the environment it adorns, taking the space to extraordinary expressions of elegance.” While the label caters to clients across the world, Hands showrooms are in Delhi, Mumbai, and Dubai.
