Flat Weave & Dhurries

Dhurrie is a thick flat-woven carpet.The concept of dhurrie is different from a carpet but since the dhurries serve the same purpose, they can be described as one. They are usually made of wool, silk, cotton, jute and chennile. The material is first converted into threads and then woven into dhurries. Dhurries are made manually by skilled artisans on a traditional horizontal loom or vertical loom.

  • Flat-weave rugs are created on a loom, rather than knotted or tufted
  • These rugs are often reversible, with designs on both sides
  • Because they only consist of warp and weft threads they don’t have the thickness of knotted and tufted rugs
  • Flat-weave rugs are lightweight and often require rug pads to stay in place


How To Identify:

With their woven construction, these rugs are flat and don’t have a pile.
