Mid Century Dhurrie rug, 203cm x 104cm (80 inches x 41 inches)


A cheerful and very charming rug from Rajasthan, circa 1950. The central field with rows of brightly woven birds drawn, in a distinctive stepped style, against a dark ground  and topped at both ends with fantastic pink tigers.


The rug is overall in excellent condition, with only minor signs of age/wear. The ends and selvages are original and intact. There is some yellowing, possibly old staining, in places but these are small and not massively apparent. The textile is double sided, with no sun damage or fading to the colours of either side so can be displayed either way.


About dhurries:

Dhurrie is an Indian term for a handwoven rug or a thin flat carpet. The concept of dhurrie is a little bit different from a rug or carpet, because they are used for bedding or packaging, not only as a floor covering. They are lightweight but hardwearing (being made from cotton or a cotton/wool blend) and are designed to be warm in winter, cool in summer.
