This is the very first comprehensive guide to the dhurrie, with lavish colour photographs taken specially for this book. Each design pattern is carefully analysed and clearly illustrated, and spinning, dyeing and weaving techniques are thoroughly explained.
The dhurrie – for centuries the most popular floor-covering in the Indian subcontinent – is becoming a must-have item in Western homes. Its striking colours and the powerful simplicity and variety of its designs are the perfect accompaniment to 21st-century interiors.
Dhurries is a vital source of information for collectors, would-be collectors and textiles aficionados everywhere, as well as an indispensable source of inspiration for anyone with an interest in colour and design.
