DESIGN: Durries

Durries are the best summer rugs
--crisp and fresh--
cotton under bare feet is incomparable.

blue and white durrie from Jaipur

These durries were made to order and have an individuality not always found in shops, which are often too faded, the colours too pastel, of poor design, etc.  They are nothing like old durries which, at one time, were made in the jails of Northern India].
