Panja Durrie

Panja Durrie is a traditional carpet woven by the women of Haryana. This variety of carpet is woven by the women belonging to the Jat community. The art of carpet weaving is taught right from the early ages. The women generally make these carpets for their personal use. A girl is expected to make a variety of carpets, which will be taken to her new home after her marriage, along with the gifts that she receives from her parents.

The technique used for weaving this type of durree has been followed by many generations. The loom is constructed using bamboos. The yarn is hand spun. The texture on the carpet consists of multicolored stripes. The images on the carpets are similar to those found on the mud wall paintings in the villages. They also include patterns similar to those found in the famous ‘phulkari’ embroidery work.
