This vintage African indigo textile was hand-dyed and hand-woven in very long strips then hand sew together to make this blanket or rug. It is the weight of a Dhurrie rug. Beautiful varying shades of faded indigo and cream.
Fringe is constructed by weaving brightly coloured wool yarns with two different shades of grey – a charcoal and a lighter smoke colour. The result is by turns bold and understated, as the primary colours fuse into monochromatic blocks. The raw grey tones are evident at the edge of the design in a tactile, long fringe, which gives the rug its name. Fringe is woven by skilled weavers from India.
