Dhurries/Namdas of Gujarat

Dhurries/Namdas of Gujarat


Woollen namdas are prepared by the Punjara community of Kutch. They are made in locally available desi wool. Impurities in the locally purchased wool are removed by hand and the wool is then spun and dyed in yellow, orange, red, maroon, blue, and black. The wool is turned into ropes by rolling it on the surface of an inverted pot. It is then converted into attractive wall hangings, horse and camel saddles, torans, caps, and floor covering.
