- Each individual felt ball is made of high quality New Zealand wool which are soaked in soapy water and rolled until they are roughly 1 cm in diameter.
- Once done, they put the ball in the cold water and rinse it. (Yes they do it to thousands more, individually to make up your rug).
- These felt balls are then dried in the sun.
- Once completely dried, they are ready to be sewn together to make the rug. It is a complex task and takes huge amount of time.

A chance encounter with the founders of Atrangi on a bright sunny afternoon in Hyderabad, left me very excited and also thankful at the same time. Often in my travels I have met local artisans who sell wonderful pieces of art / craft at ridiculously low prices - for the lack of strong platforms like Atrangi where their work of art could be showcased and sold for prices they deserve to be sold at. I think Gautam and Parinita are doing wonderful work, curating lovely pieces of art and craft from all over the globe, further enabling and empowering artists globally by selling them quality products! Support them in their great initiative!
