The legacy of carpet weaving goes back to approximately 2,000 to 3,000 B.C.E. The location where these carpets were produced still remains unknown. A pioneer in the carpet weaving industry, Obeetee bears a legacy of 102 years, the oldest hand-woven carpet company in the Indian subcontinent. Obeetee established itself in the heart of the carpet-weaving hub of Mirzapur in 1920, and has since then never looked back. A century down the line, Obeetee has flourished and carved a name for itself in the Indian carpet-weaving trade. We have made strides in our endeavour at preserving the art of carpet weaving. In retrospect, we acknowledge the immense progress and the overall evolution that has set in, in our craft, as well as the groundbreaking changes that have set in, in our techniques and collections we now present to our clientele.
