A dhurrie rug 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 Warli has 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.
Handwoven 'dhurrie' with embroidered borders, in the same colors of the corresponding area. A precious detail which enriches an apparently simple and rigorous design. Handspun wool and viscose.
