image Note:
"Woven cotton carpets or dhurries display vivid imagination and sensitivity to aesthetics. These cool and attractive floor coverings are woven in many parts of the country. Dhurrie weaving is the interlacing of a set of vertical threads warp with a set of horizontal threads weft. Dhurries are always weft-faced, the warps are never visible except at the fringes because they are completely covered by the wefts. In its simplest form, dhurries are a weft-faced plain tabby weave. The design, size and structure of the dhurrie varies according to whether they are bedside dhurries, prayer dhurries, room dhurries, festival or palace dhurries. The designs are geometric, floral or even tribal."
