T A B E L Ā // Handmade Dhurrie Rugs

Our mission is to help communities, in particular women, to develop their traditional crafts into beautiful finished products. To this end we set up a small collective of village women in the Punjab, north India, about two years ago with a simple purpose: to improve their hand knotted work in rug making, a skill passed down through generations over centuries, but now at risk of being lost. In farming communities vulnerable to fluctuating incomes, we saw it as a valuable skill the women could use to their benefit, believing in the beauty of what they can create with their hands.

And so, over the past few years we’ve been busy employing several people locally, scouting the right threads, organising tools & materials, explaining designs & processes, continually sampling & paying the ladies in order to improve their workmanship & foster a steady work environment. We’re now creating pieces with a sustained level of finish & quality, with a bygone charm that’s natural but eclectic. The best part - we’re indirectly employing over 100 village women, adding more every month.
