He started his journey as an art collector and selling vintage Dhurries. At that time the demand for vintage dhurries was very high but it was difficult to fulfil it as there were no more dhurries available in vintage style. Later in 1980’s when his son Mr. Durgesh Vijaivargia took over the business he met this demand by curating a new concept called ‘Punja Dhurrie’ – which is essentially hand crafted with a certain technique & skill in order to give it a Vintage look.
Over the last 50 years, Mr. Durgesh along with his family has diversified the business into Rugs/ Dhurries, Cushion Covers, Throws, Furniture, etc. Today, Art Age Pvt Ltd is considered as one of India’s leading home textile and rug manufacturer.
