Revival of Kashmir’s Traditional Namda Rugs: Women in Srinagar Lead the Way

Once a global favorite, Kashmir’s traditional Namda craft—making woolen felted rugs—faced extinction due to changing times. However, women in Srinagar, under a training program by Kashmir’s Handicrafts department, are spearheading its revival.

By starting their own ventures after receiving full training, they are fostering hope for the revival of Namda in Kashmir’s handicraft scene.
