Durrie Festival

Durrie Festival

The Durrie Festival will showcase the handcrafted works of rug weavers in the village of Salawas, located approximately 20 km from the city of Jodhpur. At this year’s inaugural edition, attendees can learn about the history, process and practice of durrie weaving and buy the handwoven wares directly from their makers.

The Prajapat community of Salawas has been practising the craft of weaving durries, which are intricately patterned rugs, since the mid-nineteenth century. Apart from rugs, they also make bags, cushion covers and other home décor items. Visitors will be able to go to the houses of the durrie makers, many of whom are offering homestays, to interact with them and browse their creations. The village will also have a designated zone for exhibitions and demonstrations.

During the evenings, between 7pm and 9pm, a cultural performance showcasing the folk songs and dances of western Rajasthan will be staged.
