In 2017, Obeetee collaborated with Tarun Tahiliani to unveil the first ever India inspired limited edition rugs collection. The collection, cantered on the ‘Proud to be Indian’ theme, showcases quintessential Indian designs for the first time in the country’s artistic rug heritage.

The top-notch construction of these ‘Proud to be Indian’ carpets called for specific skill set – over 150 knots per square inch, and this set of handpicked weavers did complete justice to the assigned job. Hand knotted in silk and imported wool, these rugs are an ultimate experience in luxury. Each one is unique in its patterns, colors, and textures.”

Tarun Tahiliani

Tarun Tehiliani collections are an ode to India’s glorious heritage and to her vibrant present. As the name suggests, Antique Frames is based on the borders painted in the most elaborate refinement, on the periphery of most Indian/ Mughal miniature paintings. Each rug encapsulates the mood and is finished with a distressed look to reflect the patina of that era.

The rich color palette celebrates the glorious and refined tones like Indian reds, burgundies, and rusts. They glorify the traditional embroidery art of chikankari of which the blocks, have been sourced from the cornices of the local architecture and have jaals and vines from the Persian gardens. “

Canvases painted by the designer himself inspire the third segment. S-Tex is proud to carry these collections at our Studio.
