M&K Rugs from India

  • Frank Michaelian, grandfather of the current owner, started making carpets in India in the 1950s and we at M&K have been involved with carpet weaving there ever since. The art of rug weaving was brought to India in the 17th century by the Moghuls who migrated from an area of what is now Afghanistan. Carpets back then were reserved exclusively for royalty and it was not until the British colonized India in the 18th Century that carpets were made commercially for export. Unfortunately, by the 1970s, carpet weaving had become so commercialized and the rugs had so little personality that the industry was nearly dead. 

     

  • In the early l980s Teddy Sumner and M&K created a project in India whereby traditional carpet materials and techniques were re-established. The partnership was called Black Mountain Looms and the carpets which are still made today are called Mahindras. It is ironic that in the land of Ghandi Black Mountain Looms had to bring craftspeople from the USA to teach the Indians how to hand-spin wool. The methods and materials that M&K brought back to India began a renaissance in the Indian rug industry, which today is flourishing.
