This artisanal natural and un-dyed area rug is hand woven in the remote area of the Dry Forest of Northern Argentina, using age old methods and created out of pure hand spun sheep wool. It is a unique textile and takes about two months to make. Available in the flat weave, medium weave, soga (nubby) weave.
Since the rug is dyed with natural pigments, it will have some natural variations in tones, which contributes to the organic beauty of the rug.
This Rug comes in the Lomitas texture:
The Lomitas texture is a blend of the Chusi medium and Chusi nubby sized thread to give the rug a more textured feel. It can be made in any color.
About the Artisans:
Each rug is made by hand by expert artisans. The wool is hand-dyed, hand-spun, and handwoven all in the same community by families that have been creating these traditional Argentinian rugs for generations. By choosing AWANAY textiles you are supporting the work of talented rural artisans living in inaccessible areas in northern Argentina. Every rug is created under fair trade practices.
Don't use stain removers. Sheep wool is naturally stain repellant and doesn't absorb liquids. To clean a stain, tap gently with a lukewarm wet cloth, gentle soap, and white vinegar. Never scrub. Vacuum regularly following the direction of the weave. Do not use a brush nor a high suction mode. If professional cleaning is needed, make sure it's done by a pure wool cleaning expert.
