Diversity of designs
The designer puja rugs collection by Obeetee, offers diverse and beautiful designs inspired by Indian motifs. The collection includes different types of carpets that are categorised under titles - Aradhana, Meera, Upasana, Aman and Seher. The Aradhana collection is an ensemble of miniature paintings from Northwestern India and the compositions are made using subdued tones to retain the essence of the art form. Meera, on the other hand, derives inspiration from gendas or the marigold flower. The collection is hand-knotted using a combination of the finest New Zealand wool and viscose yarn to create luxuriously soft-to-touch rugs. Upasana collection displays patterns in beautiful jewel tones that are inspired by jharokhas bordering temples and places of worship. The fluid beauty of floral patterns in miniature paintings representing the religious heritage of India is what you get in the Aman collection. Seher has concentric circular motifs inspired by the elements of nature. Rs 8,999 onwards. Available online and Shantanu & Nikhil store in Delhi.
