The Alternative Story
Alternative Technology is a global company focused on computer graphics innovation for custom carpets.
Our solution for custom carpets has significantly empowered the custom rug industry and has transformed the way carpets are designed, produced, and marketed.
Our Virtual Carpet Software Suite is one of the very few global standards for designing and illustrating rugs to clients and exchanging carpet data between the manufacturer and the buyer. The topmost companies dealing with custom rugs worldwide, as well as leading rug producers in Nepal use our software.
In 1997, we started writing a piece of a computer program to convert computer artwork into a graph for hand knotting. Suddenly, a process that took days, sometimes weeks, could be done in minutes.
For more than 2 decades, we have been pushing the boundaries of what can be done through technology in the world of rugs. We have transformed the way custom carpets are designed, manufactured, and marketed.
Our mission is to enhance the design, production, and marketing capabilities of custom rug makers for facilitating a cost-effective and sustainable carpet industry.
