Medium Wool Rug in Brick & White
This beautiful rug was handwoven in Momostenango using local natural sheep wool for both the warp and weft. The fibers were hand-spun into yarn first, then woven on a footloom, and felted to ensure durable use. The most pristine of white fibers have been used for the white stripes, and the brick orange is the result of dyeing white fibers.
Momostenango is a town in the highlands of Guatemala known for their work with wool. To weave with hand-spun wool for the warp is a challenging feat, and many weavers opt instead for commercial cotton thread for the warp. But we've selected our favorites in 100% natural and local wool. We love the end result especially with the felting, as fibers lock together and make the rug more durable.
Machine-washable in gentle cycle or wool cycle in cold water with gentle detergent. Line dry.
