"Jute carpets" Top 5 Page for this destination Bangladesh Shopping Tip by Saagar

Bangladesh Shopping: 13 reviews and 11 photos

Several places offer colorful and beautiful jute carpets for sale. They tend to come in the prayer rug size as the standard, and then as larger floor covers, runners etc.
Jute carpets do not survive very long, they get worn and frayed after some time of use as floor rugs. OK for wall decorations and as prayer mats, though.
For the floor, you better look outside Bangladesh to find South Asian and Central Asian silk carpets (plenty of cash at hand is a must) or cotton or wool carpets from India or Tibetan style wool carpets from Nepal.

What to buy: Jute carpets.

What to pay: 20 dollars and up, depending on size.

Theme: Local Craft
