Eco-friendly dhurries for a sustainable home

Sustainability and growth go hand in hand. The more a country moves towards development, the more sustainable it should become. Sustainability, the need of the hour, is defined as using the resources we sensibly have today to preserve enough for future generations. The irregularities in the world climate today are caused by the unsustainable world. The population’s negligence towards overusing fossil fuels has led to global warming and significant climate changes. Everyone might have witnessed the news of the Tsunami in Dubai, unexpected earthquakes in certain cities, unexpected visibility of the Nothern lights in the United States, and four different seasons in India all at once. From an individual point of view, a family, a group, or a business, everyone needs to play their part towards sustainability.

Eco-friendly dhurries for a sustainable home

Many manufacturing units in the secondary sector have started to adopt sustainable manufacturing steps. These steps include proper dumping of waste, recycling the used water, and using sustainable raw materials that are naturally grown. On the other hand, individual households have started to shift to using these sustainably manufactured products to do their part. We at Obeetee Carpets have been in the market for the past century. With keen attention towards sustainability, we keep updating our environment-friendly manufacturing initiatives with time.

Many homes these days are being identified as ‘sustaibale homes’. Everything in these homes, from food to clothing and decor, is sustainable or crafted using eco-friendly materials and techniques. While it is challenging to afford sustainable home decor in this mass-produced world, you can always go for Dhurries. Originating in the Indian sub-continent centuries ago, Dhurriues are like rugs with a thin pile, a flatweave. Crafted by the hands of artisans using natural fibers, Dhurries are breathable, lightweight, and sustainable. Manufactured sustainably, easy to store, and affordable, these are much more than floor coverings. Many homeowners would like to place multiple rugs in their space but resist doing so because of budget constraints; choosing Dhurries won’t just be sustainable but light on their pockets and enhance the visual appeal of the space.

Since we are on the topic of Dhurries, suggest a few Dhurries from our collection that would look good in your sustainable home.
