Festival Dhurrie

[Hali, spring 2010.]

An exhibition of traditional flatwoven Indian dhurries curated by English textile designer Simon Marks at Mehrangarh Fort Museum in Jodhpur, Rajasthan just closed but the new spring issue of Hali offers full coverage. Here's my pick for textile of the day: a circa 1910 festival dhurrie from Rajasthan with lahariya pattern and stylized holly and flower border.
