"Before there were only a few families who designed and wove rugs, and people would have to come to our homes to buy them."
"I come from a long lineage of carpet weavers. My ancestors have been in this field for more than centuries now. We are five brothers and two sisters, and we grew up as witnesses to the craft of weaving at home. I remember how enthralled we would be every time we saw varied colors merging into different weaves.
"I was just in school when I began to learn this art. I was taught by my father and older brothers, and at the time it was like a game that offered moments of great fun. As I grew up I took the loom and began to weave my own pieces. It felt so amazing when I finished my first piece!
"It took me almost three years to learn the fine art of weaving. At first my designs were simple and now, as I've gained mastery, they are more intricate. It also has to do with what people want. Before they wanted simple and elegant designs, but nowadays they are more demanding, not only in design, but also in terms of quality and price. It is therefore my responsibility to update my designs and work with quality materials to fulfill people's expectations and requirements.
"As a family, we have seen some hard times. I remember a period during my childhood when the situation was so bad I had to work at a tobacco company all day for only a couple of Rupees. I still to cringe to remember those days, but I do not blame my parents. I know they were extremely difficult times, and that was the only option.
"I have seen really bad days in my time, but they have given me the strength and determination to do well in life. For example, I had always dreamt of going abroad, so I worked hard and I realize my dreams. In 1992, I went to London for an exhibition. I also got the opportunity to go to Turkistan and Brazil. They were all wonderful experiences.
"Before there were only a few families who designed and wove rugs, and people would have to come to our homes to buy them. Nowadays there are more opportunities for us weavers to sell our rugs and carpets with exhibitions happening every now and then. They offer us to show our products to more people rather than relying only with visitors coming to our homes.
"It fills me with great pride to tell you that in 2002, I won National Award for one of my hand-woven dhurrie rugs.
"It's a great feeling to be in this field, carrying on such a precious family legacy. I only wish that my children will take forward this art."
Dear Khalil, I recently received your rug, Crisp Coral. Absolutely beautiful work. Thank you so much.
My rug is absolutely beautiful. It is more beautiful than I imagined it would be, and I am honored to have this piece of artwork in my home. Thank you Khalil, your craft is appreciated and loved each and every time I enter the room where I have placed the rug.
I have purchased 2 area rugs - one large and another in a smaller size to match. These rugs are well made with beautiful designs in great earthy colors. They really look beautiful in my home. Thank you for sharing your extraordinary talent and skills.
