Collection story

Alleppey, where Neytt is born, is a town with canals, backwaters, beaches, and lagoons.

It was described by George Curzon, Viceroy of India at the start of the 20th century, as the “Venice of the East.” This mesmerizing landscape is also famous for being the birthplace of Kerala’s famous boat race, VallamKali. The Vallamkali rug collection draws on the essence of this boat race infused with energy, rhythm and spirit. It celebrates the mesmeric synchronisation of the rowers with its charming play of green and gold.

We wanted to capture everything that is Kerala in the design. Hence, the use of gold and green. The green in our rug represents Kerala’s lush greenery, the serenity of its paddy fields and palm trees. The gold, entwined deeply in the rug’s fabric, represents the cultural and historical roots of Kerala. An integral part of every Keralite’s life, no occasion in the state feels complete without the colour gold.
