Artisan: Khalil Ahmed

Artisan Khalil Ahmed

"I come from a long lineage of carpet weavers. My ancestors have been in this field for centuries now. I remember how enthralled my siblings and I would be every time we saw varied colors merging into different weaves.

"I was taught by my father and older brothers, and at the time it was like a game that offered moments of great fun. As I grew up I took the loom and began to weave my own pieces. It felt so amazing when I finished my first piece!

"At first my designs were simple and now, as I've gained mastery, they are more intricate. Nowadays people are more demanding, not only in design, but also in terms of quality and price. It's therefore my responsibility to fulfill people's expectations and requirements.

"I have seen really bad days in my time, but they have given me the strength and determination to do well in life. For example, I had always dreamt of going abroad, so I worked hard and I realize my dreams. I have now been to London, Turkistan and Brazil to show my work.

"Before there were only a few families who designed and wove rugs, and people would have to come to our homes to buy them. Nowadays there are more opportunities for us with exhibitions happening every now and then.

"It fills me with great pride to tell you that in 2002, I won National Award for one of my hand-woven dhurrie rugs."
