Dhurries. Jodhpur

A Rajastani working on a Dhurrie in a village south of Jodhpur.
Dhurries are one of the most ancient type of floor coverings. They are flat woven yarn from India. The yarn can be wool, cotton or jute, the weave similar to kilim. It started as rather a simple rug used as an underlay. The designs used in dhurries are similar to kilims and dhurries are reversible
