History of Aaban Arts & Crafts
Aaban Arts and Crafts is from the Regal family business that has been built on a strong foundation laid in the early 1950s. From furnishing luxurious mansions in Europe with oriental hand-knotted rugs to decorating today’s homes with quality, affordable designer carpets Regal Orient Arts laid the base to the foundation of Aaban Arts & Crafts. Bhadohi, situated 45 km to the west of Varanasi, is internationally known for its hand knotted and woollen carpets. Intrigued by the craftsmanship of hand-knotted rugs and having been already part of the Regal legacy, Mr. Faiyaz Ahmad Ansari (owner) established Aaban Arts & Crafts in the year 2002 as not only leadership is passed on from generation to generation, but so is stewardship.
At Aaban Arts & Craft you can find a variety of fine Hand Knotted Carpets, Hand Loom Carpets, Jute Rugs, Dhurries, Kilims, Tibetan Carpets, Designer Carpets and other types of custom-made Rugs. We offer a diverse collection of modern to traditional rugs and carpets which are manufactured after selectively choosing the best quality raw materials including natural fibers like wool, jute and cotton as they have biodegradable properties and hence contribute to a greener environment. Each step is monitored in order to deliver the best quality to our customers.
Meet the Team
Late Mr. Mukhtar Ahmad (1928-2011), a carpet connoisseur, had a vision to furnish homes with thoughtfully made beautiful carpets. Every home has a personality and his goal was to ensure that the carpets were made to match that! Working round the clock to create new designs, innovative patterns, using a myriad of vivid to neutral colors, his collection of handiwork was always a steal.
