What:Nomadic wool Kharad rugs
Style signature:Earthy and sophisticated handwoven rugs
Dayabhai and his son are from the Kutch region of Gujarat. In the village of Kuran, these two men use age-old methods to create beautiful and sophisticated rugs – all on a loom that is extremely simple and portable and can be set up anywhere. The yarn used is not dyed – the black, white and grey are the natural sheep hair colours, giving these rugs a very warm and contemporary feel.
This weaving technique is on the verge of extinction, with only a handful of weavers able to make them. Dayabhai and his son are one of the last families still practicing kharad weaving, and they would like to keep this tradition alive.
