Dhurries are made from four types of materials : cotton, wool, jute, and silk, as well as in a variety of combinations of all these materials. The material is first converted into thread and then woven into Dhurries.

Dhurries are made manually by Chut.

In the Indian state of Rajasthan pit looms are also used for weaving in which weaver sits in a pit, and feet are used in weaving.

Madhya Pradesh Dhurries are known for their colours and sturdy character. Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, make distinctive type of Dhurries. In some parts of these states the Dhurries make a part of the dowry given at the time of a daughter’s marriage.

Several important centres of Dhurrie-making in pre-Independence Punjab are now in Pakistan. However, in present-day Punjab, the areas around Ludhiana, Faridkot and Bhatinda are fairly prolific and well-known for Dhurrie-making.


Shah-nashin, a type of Dhurrie with checkerboard pattern in the center was also a product of the Punjab region.

Citapore rugs (Sitapur Dhurries) made here are based on flat weave technique using horizontal looms. Besides cotton, jute, rayon and chenille Dhurries are also made here and exported all over the world. IKEA and Agocha have been sourcing Dhurries for their stores from this area.

Dhurries are also made in Navalgund Taluk of Karnataka state in India. It has its own geographical tag for Dhurrie, Navalgund Durries known as Jamkhana in local Kannada language.

The craft is declining rapidly and the weavers are leaving the job to sustain their lives and earn better as it is a small business and cheap to sell while it requires a lot of effort to manufacture being hand-woven.

Automation is too costly and faulty as it cannot be used without messing the design and patterns of the Dhurrie.
