A Visit to India

Welcome to the new Woodard & Greenstein blog! For our inaugural post we'd like to share about our recent trip to India. We had a wonderful time - yes, Incredible! - visiting the factory where Woodard Weave and Woodard & Greenstein Hooked Rugs are created, as well as attending the traditional wedding of the daughter of our long-time partner in Mumbai.

It was a real pleasure to see the skilled craftsmanship that goes into each and every one of our rugs, all handmade in every aspect, from the dyeing of the yarn to the weaving of our own designs on traditional hand looms.

The Mumbai wedding, with a packed schedule of accompanying celebrations, was full of excitement and, of course, India's signature colors.

The warmth and energy of India's people made our experience unforgettable.
We look forward to our next visit!
