This is a hand-woven rug in a tight and durable weave (dhurrie) with a patchwork of cut-out appliqued cotton hexagons layered on top. It makes for a stunning textural experience. A trick of the eye. The monochrome colour scheme lends itself to an industrial inspired theme with minimalist furniture or the utilitarian chic of Scandi Boho style. The slate greys and blues belie the warmth of this cotton weave and the appliqued just asks to be touched. This textile manufacturer employs four hundred men and women, of which over half are cottage workers. Employees receive ES insurance to get free medical treatment for all the family, provident fund for pensions and interest free loans for various health problems or funding marriages and support numerous charities.
