Dhurries, Gond Art from India

Cotton dhurries

Dhurries from Kalāvilāsa are highly durable, and admired for the warmth and the colour which they add to a home. Made of 100% pure Indian cotton, these dhurries feel cool under the feet, are easy-to-maintain, pet-friendly, and can easily last for 20 years or more when maintained well. These rugs have been woven in India for centuries, and are a part of India’s rich textile heritage.

Kalāvilāsa offers you the unique opportunity of designing your own rug, instead of settling for what’s available in stores. Read below to order a custom-made dhurrie. To buy from stock, download the catalog.

Wool dhurries

Wool has a hydrophobic layer which repels dust and dirt, as well as lanolin, which provides its trademark luster and protects the fiber from breaking or shedding. The most widely used fiber in luxury rugs, wool is durable, long-lasting, and incredibly soft—so it’s super comfortable to walk and relax on.

Client Stories


I absolutely love the hornbill Dhurrie I purchased from Kalavilasa. When I ordered it, I expected to use it as a floor covering, but it was just so beautiful that I wound up using it as a wall hanging. Throughout, Vivek was a pleasure to work with, always ready with ideas and suggestions, and the ordering process was super smooth as well. I plan to order at least two more Dhurries, this time in wool, and love the fact that I can customize them to fit my needs. Beyond all this, I am delighted to be able to support, in a small way, an organization that takes craft and workmanship seriously, supports local craftspeople, and pays its weavers a fair wage.

I bought a cotton dhurrie from Kalāvilāsa in 2020 before I left India and I am very happy with it! I chose an existing traditional design and customized it with a few details and a new color. Vivek was extremely helpful and understanding in helping me to find the design and color that I wanted. The result is beautiful and 2 years later it still looks perfect, the colors didn’t fade after washing, the quality of the weaving is very high. It is great to be able to have this memory of India decorating my home, while supporting a community of traditional weavers!

The beautiful cotton dhurrie that I bought from Kalāvilāsa has journeyed with us around the globe and made every house a home. It fits perfectly in both apartments and houses and is hard wearing(it still looks as good as new after 5 years). It has been used as a living room and lounge rug as well as a play rug for my daughter. It is reversible too so it can be flipped over and used both sides. Its colors are still bright. It has been a very good purchase, which is made more worthwhile knowing that artisan families have been supported too. I highly recommend these rugs and Dhurries to anyone thinking about buying one.

Thank you for this wonderful wool dhurrie! Kalavilasa produced this piece according to my own design and has managed to meet my high expectations. Vivek is very helpful and competent with advise, finding the exact color match, organizing softer wool quality and making sure that the result corresponds to the drawing, as well as delivering in estimated time. The dhurrie is neatly and tightly woven, pleasant in touch and a feast for the eyes.

Thank you! I could not be happier with my two new rugs! To be able to select the design, color and size-- this is absolutely golden to me. Of equal value is your responsiveness and attention to detail, especially under my tight timeframe. Kudos to Kalāvilāsa's remarkable craftspeople for your inspired work and to Vivek, for your aspirations to keep traditions alive. Gratitude and best wishes!

I am very happy with the cotton dhurrie that Kalavilasa custom designed for me. My living room doesn't get much natural light and I think this rug brightens it up beautifully. Though the dhurrie is about 6 years old now, it still looks good. The colors are bright and the weave holds good. This even though it gets some rough handling by my dog! Given that all the care I've given the dhurrie is a good shake out every week and a run over with the vacuum cleaner occasionally, I think it has been a very good purchase. Thank you, Vivek.
