Woolen Druggets

Woollen druggets of Karnataka and Tamil Nadu are renowned worldwide. They are graded in quality depending on the shade of the ground that they are intended to cover: the higher quality drugs are generally used on light coloured floors. Both patterned and plain druggets are produced in a wide range of colours.

There is no reverse side to a woolen drugget as the process of weaving a patterned drugget involves weaving one colour to the required width, after which it is interlocked with the second colour and then interlocked again without an extra weft. This leaves an even finish on either sides.
