The cultural word for rugs in punjab is “durries”. These rugs were hand-woven by women as part of their dowries more than 30 years ago.

People in those times did everything from plucking cotton and making a thread by using a spinning wheel to weave it.

Each durrie took roughly a month to finish.

These durries not only radiate the rich heritage culture of Punjab but also give an insight into durries being an important part of the dowry system.
