Jaipur & Rajasthan Oriental Rugs and Carpets

Jaipur oriental rugs (aka rajasthan) are those which were woven in the the vicinity of Jaipur India. 

jaipur rugs often have a medium handle, and medium thick pile.  Designs are often medium to larger print, yet contain a fair amount of detail.  Colors which are used vary from bold reds and blues to earth tones as well.  Jaipur rugs are often found to have allover patterns, with few medallion and repeat patterns woven.  It is not unusual to find a Jaipur rug which has incorporated both wool and artificial or true silk in the pile.

rajasthan (Jaipur), India is located in northwest India

Quality of these rugs is most often measured by counting the square knots, somewhat different than other Indian qualities.  The square knot means the vertical and horizontal knot count is the same: A Jaipur woven in 6/6 quality is 6 knots vertical per inch, 6 knots horizontal per inch = 36 kpsi.  Jaipur rugs usually are found to have between 36 and 100 KPSI, however there are finer qualities as well and a one or two coarser commercial qualities made as well.

9/9 is the one of the more commonly found qualities for Jaipur rugs, however we have seen as low as 5/5 and know of several importers who have program lines in the 6/6 quality... unfortunately :(
