Drømme - Behind The Scenes
Cotton Handwoven Rugs
Each of our traditionally handcrafted rugs and cushions is a unique work of art, and a meeting of traditional Indian and contemporary, Scandinavian-inspired aesthetics.
Our beautiful cotton area rugs are woven on traditional looms by our highly-skilled artisan partners in North-Western India, creating dense, heavily-woven pieces with brilliant colors and crisp, bold patterning.
Hand-Printed Indigo Cotton Rugs
Hand-printed with real indigo, these cotton rugs have brilliant clear colors and sharp patterns. They’re a perfect match for contemporary design trends in the home, with indigo’s rich blues and the contrasting bright, creamy whites complementing your light, airy room.
Our indigo rugs are woven plain and then block printed using traditional techniques centuries old. Master artisans apply a mixture of mud and limestone, before dipping the rug in an indigo solution. The process takes several days, but when the rug dries, the mud-covered areas are bleached by the limestone while the indigo dyes the rest a deep, vibrant blue. Finished rugs are then stonewashed to create a more muted, distressed look.
Indigo Printed Cotton Cushions
These indigo block-printed cotton cushions are made just the same way as out indigo rugs. Thick, densely-woven plain cotton cushion covers are covered in a mixture of mud and limestone, then dipped in real indigo before being stonewashed. The result is richly hued, with a distressed look that fits with modern home decor.
