cotton durries!

my post today is all about cotton durries and my love for them. i want lots and lots of them on my floors, my antique chests (yes i want those too), lining my cupboards...everywhere!!

printed durries above from john robshaw

for me cotton durries are a must have for any house. they are so handy and having a lot of them around the house means that one can easily walk barefoot indoors. of course these are very handy outdoors in a garden setting and are wonderful for beaches and picnics:)


flat weaves from wisteria

best place to buy durries in delhi are the state emporiums that line baba kharak singh marg in connaught place and dilli haat!

(ps: traditionally girls in india carry bedding and decorative textiles in their bridal trousseau and hand woven durries formed an integral part.. they could be used for bedding, as cattle coverlets, in the living rooms as diwan covers etc. when i get married..i wish to take some with me and carry on the tradition;)

do you like durries?

Lovely designs.. I like cotton durries too!! I have smaller ones... that I use on my bed or sofa or swing.... to match with the rest of my house...

But I like the images of the bigger ones.. as well.. Must try that!
