Medium Wool Rug in White & Terracota

//A new Artisan Direct listing from our partners in Momostenango!//

We are in love with this new rug style handwoven especially for us using local wool for both warp and weft. The fibers have been felted together by washing at a local hot spring, and the result is a beautiful and sturdy rug.

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.

100% local wool for both warp and weft.
