Description
"Traditionally used in India, dhurries are flat, woven mats that come in a wide variety of colors, designs, and sizes. Until now, these utilitarian and decorative floor coverings have hidden in the shadow of the more glamorous Oriental rug. A researcher and instructor at Sotheby's Institute in London, [Nada] Chaldecott here shines a light on these traditional Indian textiles, using 248 excellent color photos and historical Indian paintings. The author warms to her topic as she pulls out intriguing tidbits and observations, such as prison-produced dhurries or how a striped weave mimics a tiger-skin rug. The book arranges the dhurries by design and theme, clearly cataloging and defining examples and delving into their history, technique, and use. Dhurries are not generally covered in guides to Oriental rugs—technically, carpets are knotted to create a pile, while the dhurrie is a flat weave—and there is very little else available in print on this subject. Thus, this is a fine addition to the textile art field."—Library Journal
