The intricate craft of panja durrie weaving derives its name from panja, the claw-like tool used to make the durrie. Durry weaving was a big industry in rural India. The concept of durry is a little bit different from a rug or carpet because they are used for bedding or packaging, not only as a floor covering. But since the dhurries serve the same purpose as carpet or rugs they can be described as one. Dhurries are easily portable being lightweight and foldable. They come in a variety of color combinations and patterns catering to the needs of any taste or occasion.
