Panja Dhurries from Salawas in Jodhpur are well-known for their high-quality, durable rugs. Dhurries are the local term for rugs. The dhurries are handwoven, and the style is enhanced by the use of the Panja, a comb-like structure. Dhurries are mainly made of cotton, though wool and jute are also used. The looms are simple in design and are powered by hand. The intricate patterns are the same on both sides. The Panja is used for this. For centuries, the art has been passed down by families. The most popular style is ‘Leheriya,’ a wave-like pattern that is also used in Rajasthan’s tie and dye operation. Geometric patterns are common now. The designs were very intricate during the time of Kings, as they decorated the floors of the palaces. To produce intricate shapes, animals and flowers were often used, along with geometrical shapes. The craftsmanship was highly esteemed and patronized by the rulers.
