Today we have an exotic and luxurious store spotlight for IndianHomeTextile!

This shop, run by Shubham from Jaipur, India, offers beautiful and colorful handmade and vintage items such as kantha quilts, pillow covers, cushions, bedspreads, wall hangings, tapestries, accessories and more!

Meet Shubham! Here he is in workshop.
IndianHomeTextile is pretty special for many reasons - one being that they promote women and craftsmen living in the Rajasthan area through this shop.

Gorgeous hand-loomed, authentic rag rug (also could be used as a decorative piece or yoga mat).

What represents Rajasthan? Rajasthan is a beautiful land of the desert, forts, palaces and villages, extremely rich in heritage and culture. Many monuments in Rajasthan are among the world heritage site today.

Rajasthan has about 70% of their population living in villages and rural areas with very limited awareness about modern technology and developments.IndianHomeTextile promotes these women and craftsman living in rural areas who have inherited centuries old arts & crafts techniques from their ancestors and are still keeping them alive.

Made from old and vintage saaris and carpets, this beautiful pink rag rug would be lovely in your home!

This beautiful, ethnic wall tapestry is a stunning handmade piece of art!

For Shubham, the purpose of starting this Etsy store is to bring the best of handmade arts hidden in villages of India to the world. Without this shop, many would never be exposed to the exotic handmade beauty of their products.

A bold and bright Suzani embroidered tote bag!

Decorative, handmade kantha cushion covers!

 Katya's current goals for her Etsy shop is to share her work and allow others to see her view of the world from the lens of her camera.
