MIRZAPUR, India -- Obeetee Carpets, a manufacturer of handcrafted carpets and rugs in India, is partnering with the Jaipur-based contemporary rug label Tissage, to showcase Tissage's Impasto collection at its Delhi flagship store. 

The collection draws inspiration from the impasto style of painting -- popularized by artists including Vincent Van Gogh, Monet and Cezanne --where paint is applied thickly on the canvas, creating a three-dimensional effect to add texture and depth to the work. The Impasto rug collection, created by Tissage, recasts that technique to create layered rugs full of texture and depth.
The rugs in the Impasto collection feature a shimmery mix of various kinds of wools and silks and use a new innovative cross-knitting technique to simulate added depth in certain areas.

Speaking about the collection, Angelique Dhama, CEO, Obeetee Carpets-Retail, said, “The Impasto collection is a beautiful and unique addition to our range of handmade rugs. It is a true testament to the creativity and innovation that can be achieved in the world of rug making. We are delighted to collaborate with Tissage to bring this stunning collection to our customers. The collection’s unique design philosophy uses the latest techniques to create a stunning and distinctive collection that will make a statement in any space. The Impasto collection is a tribute to the creativity and craftsmanship of artisans, and we are excited to showcase it at our Delhi showroom.”
