Neelam Paralkar is the owner of Design Village, which offers a wide selection of hand-crafted canvas floorcloths, as well as game boards and table accessories. Neelam specializes in traditional quilt designs, historical floor patterns, and designs from early American wall stencils.
Neelam created her first floorcloth after moving to a new home in 1997. For months she searched for a dark blue and ocher rug with a wrought iron grill design, without success. Eventually, she decided to try her hand at making a floorcloth herself, so that she could get exactly the combination of color and design she was looking for.
“After I made my first beautiful floorcloth, I became passionate about the art.”, says Neelam. “For me, operating a home-based studio is a dream come true. From my 1500 sq ft. bright airy basement studio, I created many one of a kind pieces which my customers have cherished.”
