India Today - - WHAT’S HOT -

Whether it is a crys­tal-stud­ded floor cover or your favourite quote-in­scribed rug, de­signer Rashi Choud­hary Ba­jaj can cu­rate a car­pet to meet all your needs. The 30-year-old en­tre­pre­neur is the brain be­hind Del­hibased Car­pet Cou­ture, a stu­dio which cre­ates cus­tom-made hand­made car­pets and rugs which weave your dreams to­gether. Known for mak­ing cou­ture rugs out of a range of dif­fer­ent fi­bres vary­ing from bam­boo, raw silk, vis­cose and polyester to malai dori and New Zealand wool, th­ese beau­ties are made by weavers in Bhadohi, a small town near Varanasi. Ba­jaj tries to bring cus­tomers’ imag­i­na­tion to life and prefers to have meet­ings with them to un­der­stand their spe­cific re­quire­ments. Post this ini­tial meet­ing, art work for the piece is pre­sented to the client and once the de­sign gets ap­proved, Ba­jaj gets down to cre­at­ing the ex­act prod­uct that the client wants. USP Cre­ates car­pets and rugs in in­nu­mer­able num­ber of cus­tom-made de­signs and sizes. Price Hand-tufted car­pets cost Rs 750-Rs 2,000 per sq ft. Hand-knot­ted ones are Rs 3,000 per sq ft on­wards
