Haircut time by golftragic

Haircut time

One of the last phases of finishing off a carpet. This person is cutting the pile by hand.
Oh , my goodness. How utterly time consuming and I suppose they receive very low pay for their work. I have been a weaver and it is incredibly slow and labour intensive.

Makes you understand why they cost so much!

@jgpittenger Yes, it did give me an appreciation of the time and work that goes into each piece. There were other processes I haven't shown too. Had I not bought a piece of the marble art in Agra I might, just might, have asked the price of some pieces. But sadly, my budget was shot.

Amazing :)

What a job that would be.

I'd hate to think how many hours would go into the creation of one of these carpets!

Good grief again! So much time and effort - it's quite mind boggling.

A wonderful capture of this artist at work.

@onewing Bloomin' awful IMO Babs.

@merrelyn Yes, I certainly hadn't realised the complexity or number of processes. Bet your bottom dollar that the workers don't get much of the final price though.

@robz Well said Rob.

@ethelperry Gosh yes Ethel, I didn't realise there was as much involved in getting to the end product. I'll bet the workers see very little of the end product's price.
