As the largest producer of jute in the world, India has a rich tradition of both handwoven and naturally dyed fibres going back generations. Locally sourced and spun into yarn, these handmade strands are woven into flat dhurries by skilled artisans. In collaboration with crafts based communities in southern India, we have developed a technique of folding, rolling, and dipping these simple dhurries in natural, plant-based, dyes to achieve bold geometric designs. Materials such as Indigo, pomegranate peels, and madder root produce rich colours that are both beautiful and 100% organic.
