Dhurrie antique runner rugs have been made by the people of India for thousands of years. By definition, a dhurrie (the word is sometimes spelled "dari" or "durrie") is a flat-woven vintage round rug indigenous to India and the surrounding regions -- Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Burma. Dhurries are always weft-faced, which means that the warp, or lengthwise threads of the area rug, are never visible except at the fringes. Indian Dhurrie antique area rugs can be coarsely or finely woven and, best of all, they are reversible and easy to clean. Cotton, flat-woven dhurries are light so they can be folded and moved without a slightest effort. Moreover, their practicality manifests itself in the resistance to silverfish and other insects responsible for destroying regular carpets. Due to the fact that Indian dhurries are impenetrable to those parasites, they are distinguished by a particularly low-maintenance cost and upmost durability. Finally, a genuine cotton Indian Dhurrie rug is always warm in winters and cool in summers thanks to which one may use them all year round with the benefit to the home ambience .
