Heaven on Earth

This celestial rug from designer Vaishali Patel weaves together elements of the modern and the ancient, the practical and the transcendent. Working in Brooklyn, Patel draws upon the culture of India—from its architecture, to its language, to traditional board games—and incorporates them into her designs. Her rugs are then brought to life by skilled artisans in India, using techniques passed down for generations, including traditional floor looms.

This particular rug, with its image that evokes both the night sky and radiant energy, was inspired by an architectural detail from a sun temple in India. The rug is woven from 100% natural cotton and colored with vibrant, natural dyes. The central ring of the image is hand block-printed with custom-designed Sanskrit letters, and the rug is reversible, so that you can choose to use the rug with that detail or without. With each detail woven perfectly into the whole, it's a functional accent and an enlightened work of art. Handmade in India.

Notes
Care: use of a rug pad is highly recommended. Spot clean immediately when necessary. If liquid is spilled on your rug, blot with clean, un-dyed cotton cloth by pressing firmly around the spill to absorb as much as possible. Mild soap water can be used. Do not scrub. Professional rug cleaning is recommended. Vacuum regularly to prevent dust and crumbs from settling into roots of the fibers. Avoid direct and continuous exposure to sunlight. Use rug protectors under the legs of heavy furniture to avoid flattening. Do not pull loose ends; clip them with scissors to remove. Turn rug around occasionally to equalize wear. Store your rug by rolling it or folding it and wrap in cloth or plastic for protection. Do not store in an airtight plastic bag. Place in a dry, well-ventilated area. This product may transfer color to nylon or silk material when wet.
  • the maker

Vaishali Patel

Designer, Architect and Artist Vaishali first founded her company in 2010. As a lifelong designer, she understood that authentic contemporary Indian designs are a complex synthesis of traditional motifs and modern sensibilities. Each unique rug collection is concept driven and inspired by a vivid childhood memory of the designer; a traditional board game, the subterranean beauty of Stepwell architecture or symbols from ancient Indian scriptures. These personal design memories also leverage traditional weaving techniques allowing the textures and materials to be part of the design narrative.
