Antique Indian Cotton Flat Weave Carpet BB6530

Price: $30,000

This Indian antique oriental rug cotton flat-weave before your eyes belongs to the category of ‘dhurries’. In their homeland, these unique and important Indian textiles have always assisted people in many areas of daily life, depending on their size and pattern. Although the concept of a dhurrie is a bit different from that of a Indian area rug, they are counted among floor coverings since most frequently they serve the very same purpose.

The elegant piece before your eyes is a perfect example of why dhurries are so praised within Indian culture. Its large area rug firm body was masterly hand-crafted of the finest cotton in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. Such thorough execution resulted in a creamy, compact texture that is impenetrable to Silverfish and other insects responsible for destroying carpets which makes the dhurrie durable and low-maintenance.

The blue-and-white coloring together with dense yet delicate geometric motifs create a composition that is not only traditional but also graceful and versatile. If properly maintained, this antique flat-weave rug for sale in NYC will please the eyes of its owners for generations without any signs of wear, bringing in the recherché charm of Indian craftsmanship.
