My Uncle just made a trip to India and Nepal, for his rug company. Knick buys all his rugs from the Oriental Carpet!

That's a producers house. When visiting he shows us around the country and takes us to different factory's as well as giving us a place to stay. A wealthy producer in India.

Nice expose! BTW, where in India is this? Looks like a small village/town? And has your uncle been there before or was this his first time?

Even in the big/developed cities, a trip to India is humbling to say the least.

It was his first trip to India. Going there the producers show you around and give you a place to stay as well giving you your own personal chauffeur.

i have always wanted to go to India.
My wife and i have a new found respect/appreciation for the people who put their life into these threads we use as decoration for our silly rooms in our silly homes.

It was great talking with your uncle about his trip the other day.
Thank you for the wonderful photos!

When you say producer, are you talking about the rug people, or do you mean movie producer? I originally thought you meant movie producer, but now am leaning toward the rug producers(owner I assume)? I visited some of factories in northern India in the '80's and it was awe inspiring what they do.

Knick, I know you would love a trip to India. I got married there almost three years ago and some of my friends were nice enough to come for my wedding. I think to this day they feel it was one of the best experiences of their lives. I also brought my best friend from high school there back in the '90's and he still asks about going back. It is my second home, and I go there as often as possible. I'm a good tour guide if you guys ever want to go.;)

The producers all own factories. When you come to buy rugs they have guest houses for you to stay in, you have a personal driver to take you around to all different factory's to view rugs.

bout the Monks and rugs thing...

2 years...? wow. Are they Non-Profit? either that or you paid a a big price for it.. cant imagine 2 years on a rug.. i wonder how big. Bless them!
Nice rugs take anywhere from 6 months to 3+ years to make by hand in general(in India, not sure about other places).
