Dhurries are Indian flat woven rugs, used and admired in the west mainly for the cotton woven dhurries that are used as summer rugs. Up until the 20th century,  Dhurries were more functional than fashionable. Indians of all social standing had them, and they would be used as rugs, blankets, and wall hangings. Dhurrie weaving skills, traditions, and designs were passed down through generations. The most elaborate pictorial dhurries were actually woven in Indian prison workshops.

If you look carefully, there are cut warp ends on the left and right sides. This piece was cut from a much larger piece with repeated arches. In its original form it was a portion of a tent panel which likely formed a temporary prayer area.

This rug is woven in a weft-faced simple tabby weave out of cotton dyed with indigo. The design is dominated by a large prayer arch with a field of small stars throughout.

Keep in mind ...

Our vintage and antique pieces have traveled throughout the world and survived decades - maybe even centuries - of use. Do not expect them to be in perfect or *new* condition. Signs of their past makers and owners may be noticeable such as small holes, loose threads, & stains. In our opinion, this adds to their charm!
