This vintage Dhurrie rug has survived until this day in excellent condition due to refined workmanship. It is simple and classic hand-woven out of natural materials by a skilled artisan in accordance with centuries-old techniques. Its main filed carries an allover pattern of stripes in two shades of blue and ivory.
Dhurrie rugs are deeply rooted in Indian tradition. These relatively light but durable weaving are impenetrable to silverfish and other insects responsible for destroying carpets. Dhurries are an important part of Indian culture – they have always transcended social boundaries by serving in houses of poor and rich alike.
