THE KOLKATA COLLECTION

Past Present: In 1851, a simple graphic dhurrie served as the backdrop for a myriad of elaborate items in the India exhibit at the Great Exhibition in London. The majestic scene included a coat embroidered with pearls, emeralds and rubies,a throne of carved ivory, and a stuffed elephant donning an opulently adorned howdah. It was at this exhibition, amongst countless impressive feats of engineering and extravagant wares, that the world took notice of the humble dhurrie rug. 150 years later, our Kolkata Collection celebrates these symmetrical and colorful designs which are as splendid today as they were then.
