About Us

Let me introduce myself: I am Ursula Naim founder of Hunarkar, my love for all things handmade led me on a search for artisanal, hand woven rugs at prices that wouldn't equal two months' worth of a paycheck.

I researched and met with artisans from all over the world: Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan, India and Pakistan to bring premium quality rugs in modern and traditional designs directly from the craftsmen to your doorstep at prices to fit most budgets.

We value and respect the environment our rugs are made with pure New Zealand wool, natural silk and cotton extracted using environmentally friendly practices.

We use vegetable dyes to bring rich, vibrant colours to our rugs.

There are two ways we offer you better pricing than our competitors. We design our rugs in-house and work directly with the artisans cutting out any middlemen to bring you premium quality at prices within your reach.

We love creating bespoke designs to suit your personal design aesthetic. To get started on your custom creation email us: info@hunarkarrugs.com

How would you describe your style?

"At Hunarkar we pride ourselves on providing our clients with one of a kind: Vintage, contemporary and traditional hand knotted rugs, kilims and dhurries made by the finest artisans from around the world including Pakistan, India, Turkey, and Afghanistan."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"WILLIAM’s-Nursery flatweave rug

We recently worked on a bespoke custom flat weave rug order for our lovely client Jennifer Bee Hunter Interiors based in New York. It was an oversized rug for a boy’s nursery room in a gorgeous scarlet red and cream combination. The SHEER rug which is a very intricate design rug was selected by Jennifer and she fell in love the moment we sent her our sample.

MACE - Flatweave Dinning rug

Our second bespoke rug was for Bailey Ward Interiors for one of her living room projects which was again a classic flatweave Dhurrie rug -JOURN made in New Zealand wool in muted neutral tones of ivory and tan.

BUSRA- Hand knotted Khotan rug

Our third collaboration has been with Sarah Veil Designs for a bespoke hand knotted Khotan rug in a custom size required for her project. We were ecstatic to be contacted by her team and to have this opportunity to offer our custom-made rug services to one of the biggest interior design houses in the US.

If you are looking for your perfect artisan handmade dream rug you are at the right place!

We can custom design any rug in any size, colour and material you would like. Just send us your inspiration, your own artwork and we can weave it into a beautiful custom rug. 

As we directly work with our extremely skilled weavers from India, Turkey and Afghanistan - we let you also choose the country where you would like your bespoke rug to be ready.
