Jawaja wool rug.
A neutral look with discreet triangle decoration.

You will appreciate the quality of fine weave in this «Jawaja drugget». It has a wool weft on a sturdy cotton warp; the wool spun very slightly coarse explaining the moniker drugget. Not only handsome to look at but also robust.

The wool here is not dyed: these are entirely natural-colour wool rugs.

You can choose the sophistication of grey, or the slightly warmer colours of brown écru. Both rugs include contrasting colour Jawaja triangles and thin rules (also undyed wool) set in a plain weave field. Jawaja is the group of villages in deepest Rajasthan where these rugs are individually woven on handlooms.

These beautifully woven rugs come from the villages of Jawaja in a part of Rajasthan that had been regarded as one of the least hopeful in India.

This is a very dry area supposedly with few «resources». Yet, thanks in part to the encouragement of a retirement outreach by the founder of the Indian Institute of Management (Prof Ravi Matthai), age-old skills of traditional weavers in this place have improved, become recognized and respected, and livelihoods created.

The retired professor believed that through collective action and some external solidarity, human skill can always flourish and products be developed to international standards. Jawaja was deliberately chosen because others had written this area off as beyond hope.

The professor's vision was rooted in his firm conviction that even in a desolate place like this great things are possible when people work together for the common good.

The weaving of these rugs is evidence of the success of work begun back in the late 1970s (at about the same time – far away – that One Village was also being founded specifically to offer marketing opportunities for projects such as this).

Over the years, the artisans' alliance of Jawaja has totally changed the self-esteem of the weavers and has also lifted their position in the wider society. It has been a struggle but among the local results old caste prejudices have been washed away, whilst internationally we can bring these fine rugs into our homes and thereby admire the great skill of the artisans.

100% wool weft (undyed)
on 100% cotton warp.
Woven in India on handloom without use of power mechanized equipment.

Use your rug either way up.

Please understand that because the colours are natuaral and not dyed the intensity of grey and pale brown can vary. The way that light falls on the rug can also affect the appearance of its colour density.

The dimensions 2x1.25M are approximate.
