Entirely by hand(s), entirely unique
Mark Krebs rugs are handmade in Uttar Pradesh, India, not far from the Ganges River.
SPINNING & DYING THE YARN
Fibers are spun into yarn (to make them thick) and dyed (to make them colorful), then dried (to make them usable) and then they’re delivered to the Weavers
WEAVING ON LOOMS
The Weavers string the looms (the tool used to weave rugs) and weave the patterns together. Rug-making can be collaborative: 1-2 people can weave smaller rugs together. Larger rugs can have teams of 3 or more working together
