Habitable spaces are more than just walls and ceilings. Doors, windows, carpets, other accessories and interior design elements add a sense of elegance to the space. Installing fancy curtains over windows or laying a luxurious rug on the floor will enhance the quality of the space’s ambience. Imbibing a sense of class, we use the rugs for multiple other functions like soundproofing the hard floor, or even for directing an individual.
Until the 19th century, we used the word carpet for any cover, such as a table cover or wall hanging. The bifurcation of carpets, curtains, and rugs happened much later after the introduction of machines. Rugs provide a sense of warmth. As time passed, they have become an essential element in any habitable space.

The Urbane II collection of carpets by Hands carpets, is a series of hand-knotted and hand-tufted carpets, inspired by the dynamism and scale of urban architecture. This collection explores the influences of contemporary designs in today’s modern, urban society.
The collection includes carpets that highlight the urban living, and innovative designs with an emphasis on structures, shapes, and forms of buildings. With the use of geometric abstraction, Urbane II presents emotive works of art for contemporary living. From brutalist concrete cubes to sky-scraping structures in steel, the collection is an ever-continuous documentary of the evolution of the urban landscape. The collection includes an attractive and wide range of carpets, from woollen textured, dark-toned carpets to solid chequered ones.
