Corn-Silk Handloom Large Dhurrie From Sitapur with Kilim Weave
Geometric curves, rangoli-style florals, and gracefully stitched narrow panels characterise the Indian kilim rug. The one you see on this page has been handpicked from Sitapur, having emerged from the contemporary horizontal looms in use with contemporary artisans in the region. These looms are a later phenomenon - kilim rugs, of the flat-woven and knotted varieties - were originally woven on the vertical loom. Zoom in on each of the panels of this jute number to appreciate the complex interlocked tapestry weave, each coloured area achieved with wefts painstakingly handwoven back and forth into the warp.
In fact, this is what defines the kilim weave. The background, a creamy ivory colour in the field and pastel reds and oranges in the panels along the edges, has been woven in mechanically afterwards. Given the vibrant colour palette, it would be an eye-catchingly colourful item to add to your home decor; a cheerful start to your day as you roll it out prior to your yoga practice. It is fashioned from pure homegrown jute, a durable medium that would last long enough for this piece to become a family heirloom. Do not miss the miniscule white tassels along the edges, adding to this dhurrie an earthy, home-like appeal.
