Indian Company Extraweave Created Met Gala’s Iconic Carpet This Year

We saw Indian celebs Priyanka Chopra, Alia Bhatt, Isha Ambani and Natasha Poonawalla at Met gala 2023 held at New York’s Metropolitan Museum Of Arts on Monday. The celebs came all dressed up for this year’s theme titled Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, in honor of the late designer Karl Lagerfeld and celebrated his artistic brilliance.

But apart from the celebs, do you know the other Indian connection with this year’s Met gala. Well let us inform you that the carpet used for the red carpet area was woven and created in Kerala, India.

The carpet was created by Extraweave, a carpet manufacturing company from Kerala.

‘A huge day for us and for India. We are proud to showcase our beautiful Sisal carpet to the world through Met Gala 2023. Made out of 100% Sisal, woven in Alleppey and hand painted at the US. It was an amazing opportunity to share the stage with such talented designers and celebrities.’ said the proud creators.

This is the second association of the company with the Met Gala as they had created the red carpet for the event last year too.
