Vintage Dhurrie Flat Weave Rug BB5370

Price: $9,000

This mid-century Dhurrie flatweave antique rug features geometric and floral abstractions, arabesques and serrated leaf patterns in shades of red, beige, green and brown against a field of green. The herati pattern, also known as the “fish pattern,” a stylized design of a flower usually centered in a diamond and framed by diagonal leaves – and a commonly occurring motif in Oriental rug-weaving – serves as a sort of medallion.

A Dhurrie is a flat-woven cotton vintage carpet from India. In the twentieth century, these antique flat-woven indinan dhurrie rugs began to be recognized and lauded as a significant art form from the Indian subcontinent. Transcending social boundaries, the Dhurrie rug was used by both commoner and royalty; at its simplest it was a multi-purpose textile used as a floor covering, bedding or packaging, while at its most elaborate it was woven with the finest fibers and enhanced by gold-wrapped thread when gracing royal palaces.
