Founded in 1881, in Bhadohi – north India, by Mr. A Tellery, who is largely considered the pioneer of the modern Indian handmade carpet business, the crafting of fine handmade carpets was passed on to the Patodia family decades later, of which the second generation now drives the craft. Enriched with a legacy that spans 137 years, Hands has woven carpets for some of the world’s most prestigious palaces, luxury hotels, institutions and residences.
While being known for having crafted what is arguably the world’s finest hand-knotted carpet, with an incredible 4900 knots per square inch, Hands is today the purveyor of fine hand knotted and hand tufted carpets. Their weavers come with generations of expertise, channelizing their experience into every handmade carpet. Materials used are among the finest, from New Zealand wool to the most luxurious qualities of silks.
