Rajasthani Carpets are a popular item of export today. Raja Man Singh of Ajmer brought this intricate craft to Jaipur by inviting skilled artisans from Afghanistan. Eventually, Jaipur, Bikaner and Amer became the prominent centers of carpet weaving. Popular designs are Persian and Caucasian. The motifs consist of human figures, flora and fauna, landscapes and geometric.

Hand woven durries (once a humble cotton carpet spread under carpets) in cotton and wool are woven on the village looms in vibrant designs and motifs. Geometric patterns are the most common. The towns of Jaipur and Barmer are the leading centers for producing durries.
