House of Dhurries are passionate about textiles. We are especially drawn to handmade, quality weaving with asymmetrical designs. Many visits to India has kept us fascinated. House of Dhurries celebrate old-world handicrafts. The inherent skills and imagination of Indian weavers can turn bundles of wool, silk, cotton, jute, hemp, leather, and even grass into beautiful, colourful fabrics and carpets. Their primitive looms and hand tools have not changed much in thousands of years. House of Dhurries’ contemporary collection comprises cotton Dhurries and sustainable Chindi carpets. Dhurries are flat weave, 100% cotton carpets that have root in local materials and traditions. Chindis are flat weave rag carpets made of multiple fabrics that are cut-offs and excess materials from the local fashion industry. Our local artisans combine the strips into tasteful and highly decorative, practical floor or wall coverings. We engage artisans in rural areas by providing looms and raw materials in their private homes. This enables especially house-bound women to earn an income, supplementing the living standard of the entire household, as well as empowering the individual.
