Colored Indian carpet - Your Shot - National Geographic Magazine -- Kristian Bertel

Photograph by Kristian Bertel, Your Shot

This photo of an Indian carpet was taken in the city of Nashik in Maharasthra, India. Indian carpets are known for their high density of knotting. Hand-knotted carpets are a speciality and widely in demand in the West. The carpet industry in India has been successful in establishing social business models that help underprivileged sections of the society. Carpets in India can be made in any color by using differently dyed fibers. Carpets can have many different types of patterns and motifs used to decorate the surface.
