Story Behind the Art
Dhurries are made manually by skilled artisans on a traditional horizontal loom or vertical loom. The dhurrie is a woven floor-covering that started out as a humble version of the carpet. It is often utilized as a floor mat, but it could also be used as the bottom lining of bed covering.
Unlike a carpet which is made by knotting or tufting fibres into a warp, a dhurrie is made by hand weaving or interlacing vertical and horizontal threads. It has no pile or backing, so it’s reversible and lightweight.
