How Our Tapestries are Printed

We’ve received many questions asking Who makes your tapestries? and How are they made? Well, to answer your questions we went all the way to India. Scroll down to see the process.

 

 

 

Before they are shipped out of Nhava Sheva, India to Boston and then our headquarters in Woonsocket, RI, our tapestries are transported by camel. Camels are used because they are surefooted, hardy, and able to navigate narrow dirt roads that are inaccessible by car or truck.


Every tapestry starts off as cotton thread which is woven together into cloth by a powerloom.


Much of the work is done outside. The newly washed cotton sheets drying in the sun help create cold air making this one of the coolest places in India. The sunshine is best for fixing the colors.


All the water used in the printing process is heated by wood and treated before being recycled in the farmland.
