Warangal Dhurries is popular traditional thick cotton rug in which weavers create beautiful patterns and dye them using vegetable colours, which are washed in flowing water after the printing process. Currently, there are more than 2000 weaving community members present in Kothawada, Warangal in spinning Dhurrie. The products are exported mainly to UK, Germany along with few other European and African countries.

The durries of Warrangal are the pride of Telangana. Carpet-weaving at Warangal began when the Mughal army, which included artists and craftespersons -- moved into the Deccan region. Since the area around Warangal grew abundant cotton and was also known for weaving, thus carpet-weaving began flourishing here without great difficulty. Most of the weavers are men; only a few women have been trained in the craft. Here also, the designs are often named after patrons. Mahbub khani, Teerandas khani, Hashim khani, Dilli khani, and Thotti khani are examples of this practice. The designs are again of Indo-Persian origin. Complicated designs are woven and the traditional talim Dilli khani has boats (kishti) and floral motifs and Thotti khani is a design-composition built around flower-pots (thotti means a clay flower pot).
