We love dhurries and for those of you who haven't read our little custom-made dhurrie blurb we suggest you have a bit of a read. We just received a shipment of dhurries which included a few of our special fenton & fenton designer range. Here's a picture of the bloke weaving one:
And here is the finished product!
It blows me away what these artisans can do!
The weaving takes place in small villages out in the desert, in quite exposed conditions (and in the middle of monsoon when it's 45 degrees and humid believe me you don't want to be squatting under a piece of galvanised iron for too long).
So this is where your dhurrie, should you decide to invest in one, starts its life. Like a pair of jeans or a fine wine, they will soften and gain character with age - as any quality rug should. My hat is off to these gentlemen, as I keep throwing them more and more challenging designs they continue to amaze me with their ability to make my vision a reality.
