Patterned handmade rug
Dhurrie is a form of hand weaving very similar to “kilim”. It is made up exclusively of warp and weft, woven and not knotted. It is also called “flat weave”. The pattern or design is created solely by the weft which covers the warp. It does not allow for complicated patterns or textured surfaces as the other techniques do. This may at first appear as a limitation. But we have evolved the original technique by introducing additional threads to the basic wool weft (low-pile). The pattern is produced by this secondary high pile in viscose. The carpet is backed with the same latex and cotton canvas method as the hand tufted carpets.
A tribute to traditional oriental carpets, modern revisited patterns and workmanship.
We experimented a new combination of hand embroidery technique decorative motifs, made directly on the rug after its weaving. The polyesther embroidery is executed by Indian women belonging to a non-profit association, which Warli is proud to support as a source of independent livelihood.
