As the largest producer of jute in the world, India has a rich tradition of both hand woven and naturally dyed fibers going back generations. Locally sourced and spun into yarn, these handmade strands are woven into flat dhurries by skilled artisans.
In collaboration with crafts based communities in southernIndia, we have developed a technique of folding, rolling, and dipping these simple carpets in natural, plant based dyes to achieve bold geometric designs. Materials such as Indigo, pomegranate peels, catechu, “flame of the forest” flowers or madder root produce rich colors that are both beautiful and 100% organic.
