The thing about traditions is, no matter where we go, it’s true essence never really leaves us. Our traditions, bind us in their beautiful threads of memories, emotions, and historical importance attached to them. Passed down to us through our ancestors and then through us to our future generations, the beautiful cycle of traditions is one that might evolve with change in the culture, but never truly diminishes.
The rug and carpets industry in this regard is constantly evolving and exploring new and interesting ideas. However, traditional décor elements i.e. designs, materials, motifs, colour schemes from the olden times is something the industry never can move past. There’s something about the traditional elements that always enlivens and enhances the aesthetics of any atmosphere. The older a carpet is, the more exquisite it becomes. The more attached its roots are to the times gone by, the more it complements the aesthetic requirements of the present day homeowner.
