Numdah rugs are made of unspun wool or wool and cotton pressed and felted in specific proportions.
The art of Numdah came from Yarkand and Sinkiang regions of Central
Asia during Silk Route Trading days. It stayed to become an indigenous craft of
Kashmir. The felt is embroidered with a hook in bold designs and assortment of
colors. The sizes range from 2'x3' to 6'x9' in square, rectangular and in round and oval shapes. This art was later enhanced by Kashmiri craftsmen by adding
colorful embroidery to give it a warm and cozy feel. The colors are rich,
designs are vivid, intricately detailed in multi-colored patterns.
