Abstract

Apart from the scenic beauty of Kashmir, it is also renowned for its carpets weaving. It is a matter of pride for India Legacy. The weaving skills have been passed down by fathers to their sons, who have built upon those and in turn, handed them down to their offspring as a closely guarded family secret. A quality Kashmiri new carpet must be handmade or maybe palm knotted by 100% pure made of wool or maybe 100 % pure man-made fiber. This handicraft is unique in terms of design, cost, and quality of products. The study focuses on contemporary challenges and thereby providing suitable suggestions in order to make this handicraft more sustainable in the future. This craft is expensive, time taking, and required skilled weavers to do it. The motifs, patterns, and colors used in this art are unique apart from the weaving patterns. In the contemporary world this art cannot be applicable in its original form at every interior space. So, recreating carpets, wallpapers, fabrics used in furnishing of interiors with the motif patterns, and colors used in this could make this art sustainable. This can be the best way to add the history and memory of ancient people.
