Carpets of Uttar Pradesh

Mirzapur, Badohi, and Khamaria are the main towns which have trained carpet weavers.

Twisted cotton thread is used along with the Jute twine giving rougher qualities of carpet with about 60 knots per square inch. Cotton and woolen carpets are made in Shahjehanpur and Agra where weavers produce traditional and new designs keeping the market demand in mind.
