About Hand-knotted Cotton Dhurries

Very often, dhurries are seen as a run down version of a carpet. Although, it may seem common and regular, the origins of Dhurrie weaving are of the royal kind. It is believed that the prayer rug, also known as the ‘jainamaaz’ used and left behind by Emperor Aurangazeb in the year 1686 in the Bijapur mosque is what inspired the weaving of this kind of a flat weave. Known for its practicality, there are now dhurrie weaving clusters in and around Warrangal transforming this art form to a thriving Cottage Industry. These multi-coloured dhurries have evolved with times incorporating Ikat patterns and Kalamkari prints, becoming contemporary in nature.
