Obeetee's Collaboration with Contemporary Art

The journey of our carpets began in a house of small weaver families situated in the town of Mirzapur, where for generations, we have meticulously woven carpets gracing homes across the globe. Committed to preserving the ancient art of handweaving that runs deep within our Indian heritage, passed down through the ages, we with our experience in fine craftsmanship departed on a voyage into the realm of contemporary art alongside Tissage, another rug-making pioneer in the global market.

This collaboration is a fine portrayal of the rich Indian heritage inspiring and infused into contemporary art, creating a set of carpets using the Imapsto style of painting. A sensory delight, each carpet in this collection is handwoven and boasts of abstract art influenced by nature.

Inspired by the unique painting styles that originated in the 20th century, followed by artists like Vincent Van Gogh, the collection of carpets crafted in this collaboration goes by the name ‘Impasto”. This painting style brings a three-dimensional to these works of art, adding texture and depth.

As mentioned earlier, the collection draws inspiration from the Impasto style of painting, where paint is applied in the form of thick layers to create a three-dimensional effect. Only the canvas of art has been switched with a canvas of carpet. Every design created in the collection is created by layering thick sketches of contemporary motifs on one top of another. This creates a 3D effect, adding a visual appeal to the carpet in any setting.

It features a shimmery mix of cotton, wool, and silk, meticulously combined by following a new cross-knotting technique to add depth to certain areas as per the design. Adorned with designs inspired by Japanese culture and abstract art, the uniqueness of the designs depicts the creative vision of the designer.
