Handcrafted, sustainably, by traditional artisans in Oaxaca, Mexico, this beautiful area rug is warm and cozy by the bed or as an accent in any room.

Woven on a waist loom by artisans from the Teotitlan Del Valle village in Oaxaca, Mexico whose livelihoods have been impacted by mass production.  This traditional technique is time consuming but produces a rug that is thick, soft, very durable and beautiful.  The ancient patterns enhance a variety of decors.

Size:  3 x 2 feet, heavy wool on one side and linen backing on the other.

Spot clean with damp cloth or dry clean.

Producing rugs on the waist loom is time consuming and involves Intertwining threads on a wooden loom, tying the threads to a pole or tree, and to the waist of the artisan on the opposite end.  Using chopsticks, other threads are woven across the threads on the loom producing unique patterns with the distinctive appeal of handmade products.
