Dhurrie rugs are deeply rooted in Indian tradition. These wonderful textiles have always transcended social boundaries by serving in homes of poor and wealthy alike.
This rug was made in accordance with the centuries-old techniques in order for it to comprise all the special features of antique Dhurrie rugs. Carefully hand-woven of the finest cotton in a distinct weave, the fabric is thick yet light, easy to carry and undemanding in terms of maintenance. Moreover, its structure is practically impenetrable to silverfish and other insects responsible for destroying carpets. If properly maintained, the modern rug will withstand years of usage without any signs of wear.
Next to impeccable workmanship, the Indian Dhurrie boasts a classic design of stripes. The combination of blue and off-white is extremely typical of Indian art as the country is the world capital of indigo – the famous natural blue dye deriving from the indigofera tinctoria plant.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
