Yak Carpet is one of the oldest and largest handmade carpet establishments in India.

Basic Information

Founded in 1976 by Harash Talwar, Yak Carpet is one of the oldest and largest handmade carpet establishments in India. The idea was to marry the traditional concept of running a carpet business with modern means. They also source carpets from Persia and Afghanistan and sell them to their clients. They own two manufacturing units and two are contractual. All four are spread across Uttar Pradesh, Agra, Rajasthan, and Kashmir. They also experiment a lot. For example, they use jute, sisal, and saree silk to manufacture rugs. Recently, moving towards sustainable means, they also started using recycled plastic bottles as raw materials for creating rugs. They sell only through their portal (Rugs and Beyond) and not through ecommerce marketplaces like Amazon or Flipkart to maintain exclusivity. They also sell in India through two standalone stores and have about 30 selling stores. See more
