Carpet weaving in Ranakpur, Rajasthan, India


On my way to Udaipur, I got a chance to visit this small business of rug weaving.


Everything is handmade here.





Choosing the right colors and design turns out in beautiful carpets

This talented rug weaver had been wearing such an impressive turban, so I had to ask him how he can wrap around all this fabric, seemed to me like an art to do this

Such a wonderful visit and demonstration of the art of weaving and this artist is doing quite well with his talent.

    Wow. Did you visit the temple at Ranakpur ?

    • Thank you Anil for visiting my post. Yes I did visit the temple in Ranakpur and it was just breath taking, I have visited your post about the temple and loved all the details and history about it. I stayed overnight in Ranakpur at a wonderful place , where at the moment I forgot the name of it. I I had been on three week trip in India just by myself and my camera and it was the most wonderful trip ever I had taken by myself and I have travelled a lot by myself. Namaste

      • Thank you so much for your kind words Anil I feel honored that you keep following my posts, as I do too with your blog. I haven’t finished either looking at all your posts, though they make me missing India. Indeed my camera and me had the greatest times ever, in India.
