Expert Craftsmanship, enhanced by a narrative

As is the case with any canvas, the beauty of our carpets is that they can vary from artisan to artisan, and yarn to yarn. Each of our carpets celebrate their inconsistencies which cannot be replicated by a machine or for that matter, even by hand -- truly making them one of a kind.

Philosophy

Mishcat Co aims at changing the way people perceive sustainable luxury in the global design world, by up cycling leftover sari scraps into one-of-a-kind carpets; and using each as a starting point to a new, beautifully curated space.

Working in rural areas across Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, Mishcat Co supports a network of independent artisans and weavers who due to limitations, have not been able to move to bigger cities and work in large scale production houses.

As is the case with any canvas, the beauty of our carpets is that they can vary from artisan to artisan, and yarn to yarn. Each of our carpets celebrate their inconsistencies which cannot be replicated by a machine or for that matter, even by hand- truly making each one unique.

Core to the Mishcat design philosophy is the use of waste sari yarn. The finest leftover silk fibre is gathered from the sari industry, which is siphoned and hand carded into spools of yarn and then hand knotted. We believe that a carpet ought to be both the cornerstone as well as the foundation on which a room is curated. As our carpets move from inspiration to loom and from loom to home, the holistic energy that is felt in a well designed room's narrative is what we aim to achieve at every step of our process.
