This beautiful hand loomed rug was woven using hand shorn/hand spun local sheeps wool which was hand dyed with traditional natural dyes Grana Cochinilla, an insect harvested by hand from the paddle cactus "Nopal" and the bright yellow "Pericon" flower.
The gradient look to the weave comes from the hand dyed nature of the wool. Each time the wool is dyed in a steaming hot cauldron brimming with water and natural mater over a wood burning fire, the color becomes lighter and lighter, each strand left with a distinct one-of-a-kind color.
The traditional belts "Fajas" worn by women in Teotitlan del Valle Oaxaca where the rug is woven, inspired us to develop this decorative macrame pom pom fringe adding a bit of feminine detail to this gorgeous (and deceptively simple!) piece.
