About House of Knots

With the launch of its debut collection of handcrafted designer rugs, House of Knots reimagines the carpet-weaving traditions of India for the contemporary home. “Longing,” created in collaboration with Eshita Marwah, is an introduction to the brand’s design philosophy, which expands upon three decades’ worth of experience in manufacturing and exporting to countries across the globe. Marwah’s abstract patterns and color palettes pay homage to the power of imagination and the human spirit. Every thread is part of a unique story, meticulously strung together by the artisan, and preserved as an heirloom for generations to come. The collection marks the beginning of a new journey for House of Knots as it seeks to not only revive the carpet-weaving traditions of India but also empower designers and artisans along the way.

Eshita Marwah’s concept emerged from her experience of isolation during the pandemic. The designer found solace in her memories of travel and inspired by the souvenirs she had collected over the years, created a fantastical world in which cities and natural landscapes attain an ethereal, dreamlike quality. Her abstract visions, told through captivating visual details and soothing, natural tones, entice audiences to discover the many worlds that exist in their own imaginations.

Types of Rugs

The earth-washed “Cityscape” rug is an abstract homage to the urban landscapes one witnesses as a traveller. The deep blues and rich reds of “Into the wild depths” reflect the palette of the natural world. It also talks of a beauty that cannot be expressed through language. In “Lost Stories,” the everyday joys of street life, which often go unnoticed, take on a whimsical quality. The rug reminds us of the simple pleasures that exist even in our most mundane spaces.

Sustainable Materials

The rugs are manufactured in all-natural materials, most notably New Zealand Wool and viscose, while all dyes are 100% azo-free. House of Knots aims to make its manufacturing process completely sustainable by the year 2025. In so doing, the brand seeks to empower the artisans and designers of today. It also seeks to excite the imagination of audiences around the country. Through collaborative design and a commitment to sustainability, House of Knots aims to inspire audiences to see the beauty in their past as they visualise their journey for the future.

“Our rugs tell the stories of the artisans, the designers, as well as the people who bring them into their homes. Our designs are an interplay of traditional and modern, where we merge the tradition of hand-crafted rugs with contemporary, timeless design.” – Shivam Agarwal, Founder and Creative Director, House of Knots.
