Doris Leslie Blau Collection Indian Dhurrie Deep Blue Flat-Weave Cotton Rug

$ 13,000
  • Description
    Dhurrie, also known as durrie or durry, it is a thick flat-woven  Indian   carpet  with characteristic designs and colors. A cotton flat-weave dhurrie rug is cool during the summer and warm during the winter which makes it very practical choice, considering the weather in India. Although characterized by its large size, dhurrie  is surprisingly light thanks to its construction and materials used during the process of weaving. The role of flat carpets in Indian culture ascended beyond economy  and found its way into the philosophy and literature of the country. The idea that universe is a fabric woven by the gods appeared in for the first time in Rigveda, an ancient Indian collection of Vedic Sanskrit hymns and one of the four canonical sacred texts of Hinduism. What certainly draws attention to this stunning  Indian rug  is not only its stunning design, but also superb quality of its weave. This rug was woven with a great care and talent, making it more than just a floor covering - it is a masterpiece. The design consists of an allover Moroccan clover pattern adorned with a small square in the middle. The whole is framed by an elegant border which features a Greek Key motif. Color palette accompanying it contains two shades of blue, which together create a truly unforgettable composition. We would like to encourage you to browse through Doris Leslie Blau's grand collection of high quality  contemporary rugs  and  antique carpets . Who knows what kind of treasures will you find there?
