Aztec Rug 04

$215.00

  • 100% natural wool
  • 39" x 23"
  • Handwoven on a waist loom in Oaxaca, Mexico

The waist loom is a very old technique used by Mesoamerican cultures. At present, artisans continue to use this technique to make some of the pieces they use for their clothing as well as home decor accessories. This technique consists of intertwining threads of any type of fiber in a wooden loom, tying them to a pole or tree on one side, and to the waist of the craftsman on the other; and interconnecting perpendicularly other threads with chopsticks to give the finish to the weft of the fabric. The elaboration of a wool rug like this is a slow process that can take up to 2 weeks to finish!

Our shoes fit true to size unless otherwise noted. In general, they may fit snug at first, and since they are leather lined they will stretch a bit to fit like a glove.
