Tabelā is a London and India based design studio specialising in contemporary, hand woven dhurries. By reinterpreting old methods of traditional craft, our dhurries are made by collectives of women and rural weavers in India using natural cotton and Himalayan wool.
On a mission to help women in rural communities develop their traditional skills in craft, we set up a collective of village women in the Punjab, northern India, to improve their weaving skills in rug making. As an ancient skill passed down through generations, it is 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. Now each one of our dhurries is patiently hand woven in a village home over many weeks, and then carefully finished in our studio to maintain quality.
Our collection exudes a bygone charm that is natural and eclectic. All our dhurries are made to order and available in a range of customizable designs, colors and sizes. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details or order via Etsy.
