About Block Shop Dhurries
Our heirloom dhurries are woven by a self-governed cooperative of master weavers outside Jodhpur, India. We start with watercolor sketches, which our team interprets onto traditional two-person looms with hand-dyed cotton. Woven over the course of several months, our dhurries are as durable as they beautiful. Your rug will last for generations.
Dhurries are lightweight yet virtually indestructible. Designed for heavy use in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, they wear beautifully with age inside the most trafficked rooms of a busy household. We suggest using a rug pad underneath for extra cushion and longer wear. Vacuum regularly, spot clean as needed.
