Knot ya Stitches

Carpets (c)ramaswamyn.com

This Armenian word for Knots or Stitches also known as Carpets / Rugs is a mandatory in cold climates. But in Chennai its mostly used at Bungalows, High End apartments and that too at their Drawing rooms/ Halls or covering some Marble floors.
Many buy from these mobile carpet vendors because of economical reasons, and due to popular belief that the carpets at shops are costlier.

  1. Same here. Not very practical to have thick wool rugs in Metro Manila because of the dust and heat.

  2. When I see carpets, I am reminded of child labor and Kashmir.

    In India, best carpets are made in Kashmir and Badohi (Mirzapur).

    I am also reminded of a story in Jeffrey Archer collection – A twist in the tale – “The Steal” which is about a couple who travel to a new destination every year and try to get the best bargain as a memento. The main plot of this story is the couple trying to make a steal buying an attractive carpet for a bargain price in Turkey. (The twist is at the end of that tale which I do not want to reveal. Else it will be a steal from Archer!)

    Ram: I remember the Archer Story very well .. thanks for reminding ….

  3. These mobile carpet vendors cheat you. I bought once for Rs.3,000/- and in three months i had to throw the carpet. One has to be very careful in buying these carpets.

    Ram: The “buying carefully” goes for any sale of an uNbranded item, ANand. Do you Agree?
